Basic rule of adjectives
Every adjective must agree in number and gender with the word or words it modifies. Adjectives ending in -e have two forms, singular and plural. Other regular adjectives add -e for feminine singular and -es for feminine plural, -s for masculine plural.
Placement of adjectives
Most adjectives are placed after the modified noun.
The 'BAGS adjectives' ('BAGS' representing 'beauty, age, goodness, and size') are placed before the modified noun.
