Lesson Three (Dräi) - Adjectives
How to describe people (Adjectives)
The phrase The man is tall is De Mann ass grouss
The words The woman are D’Fra
Using that, how would you say The woman is tall?
In Luxembourgish, there are three genders; masculine, feminine and neuter. But, like in most languages, the plural is formed differently to its singular partner.
De Mann is masculine
D’Fra is feminine
For neuter, everything stays the same
D’Meedchen girl ass grouss
And for plural, ass is replaced with si. (ass=is; si=are)
D’Kanner child si grouss
But, adjectives placed before the noun will change depending on their surroundings.
De grousse Mann
Déi grouss Fra
Dat grousst Meedchen
Déi grouss Kanner
The word prittiest is schéinst
Using that, answer this translation.
Yet, if you want to say the most handsome man, you have to say
Dee schéinste MannNext lesson >
