Galician Adjectives

Learning the Galician Adjectives displayed below is vital to the language. Galician 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 Galician an adjective should agree in gender and number with the noun. For example:

a)    Masculine to feminine example:

Este é o meu fillo pequeno (this is my little son) becomes: Esta é a miña filla pequena (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)    Singular to plural example:

Este é o meu gato branco (this is my white cat) becomes: Estas son os meus gatos brancos (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:
