Albanian Adjectives

Learning the Albanian Adjectives displayed below is vital to the language. Albanian Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence.

Grammar Tips:

While in English an adjective doesn’t change when the noun changes, in Albanian an adjective should agree in gender and number with the noun. For example:

Masculine to feminine example:

Ky është djali im i vogël (this is my little son) becomes: Kjo është vajza ime  evogël (this is my little daughter) yes we have the change from ky/ masculine singular into “kjo’ feminine singular, and from  personal pronounce “my” /im, in masculine singular, in feminine singular is “ime”

As you can see from the example above, the adjective comes after the noun and also takes the feminine form.

Singular to plural example:Kjo është macja ime e bardhë (this is my white cat) becomes: Këto janë macjet e mia të bardha (these are my white cats).

As you can see from the example above, the adjective comes after the noun and also takes the plural form.


Here are some examples:

Note: The adjective in Albanian when used as a modifier, is placed after the noun and agrees with it in gender and in number, for example: një mëngjes i ftohtë (masc. sing.)- disa mëngjese të ftohta (masc. pl.)- (a cold morning - (some) cold mornings); një ditë e ftohtë (f.s.) - disa ditë të ftohta (pl. f.) - (a cold day - (some) cold days). During the declension of the noun the adjective remains unchangeable.

The adjectives in Albanian are usually accompanied by the connective article, which is determined by the gender and the number of the noun. The connective articles are: i, e, të. The connective article i is used before the adjective with a singular masculine noun in indefinite or definite form, for example:
një shok i mirë - shoku i mirë (a good friend - the good friend )
