Bengali Adjectives

Learning the Bengali Adjectives is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you master it the more you get closer to mastering the Bengali language. But first we need to know what the role of Adjectives is in the structure of the grammar in Bengali.

Bengali 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 Bengali an adjective sometimes agree in gender with the noun. For example:

a)    Masculine to feminine example: (non-agreement)

Eti amaar chhoto chhele (this is my little son) becomes: eti amaar chhoto meye (this is my little daughter)

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

b)    Masculine to feminine example: (agreement)

Sundar purushh (good looking man) becomes: sundari naari (beautiful woman).

Buddhimaan chhele (intelligent boy) becomes buddhimoti meye (intelligent girl)

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


Here are some examples:
