Undecided questions
Where do you put adjectives in a sentence?

Do you usually put adjectives before or after the noun? Could you also provide some examples of both before-the-noun and after-the-noun situations?

    Sort by:

    We usually put adjectives after nouns, but, if for the sake of sound it's better differently, then we do so.
    For example you can both say "un bel quadro" and "un quadro bello" (please notice how the adjective "bello" is shortened thereby becoming "bel" for the sake of sound.
    I hope I helped you out!

    it's depend of what you're talking about..for example.
    1. un amico vecchio : a friend is old
    2. un vecchio amico: a close friend.

    but adj is after the noun.
