Russian adjectives

Russian adjective - прилагательное denotes an attribute of an object and answers the questions Какой? Какая? Какое? Какие? (What kind of?) and agree with the noun that it points to in the sentence. Russian adjectives declines by changing the ending of the adjective to reflect its agreement with the noun, it takes masculine, feminine, neuter or plural endings depending on the noun or pronoun it modifies. For example, if a noun in the nominative case is masculine singular, the adjective that points to this noun should be as well in the nominative case and in masculine, singular.

Russian adverb - наречие answers the question Как? (How) and it is inflexible, does not have gender or number and never changes for cases. It modifies a verb, an adjective or another adverb.

The adjectives and adjectival words are registered in the dictionaries in the masculine. The Russian adjective is most often a definition in a sentence, but it can be a predicate and a subject.

  • animate and inanimate
  • qualitative, relative and possessive
  • proper and common

Russian nouns decline, they inflect (change their form): the different endings are added to the steam of the word to indicate its function in a sentence. Sometimes even the root of the word may alter as well. Russian adjectives, pronouns and numerals decline too. Their endings change according to (they agree with) the gender and the case of the modifided nouns.

The case of a noun is often associated with the preposition and/or the verb that stands in front of it.
