Macedonian Adjectives

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

a)    Masculine to feminine example:

Ова е мојот мал син (this is my little son) becomes: ова е мојата мала ќерка (this is my little daughter)

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

b)    Singular to plural example:

Ова е мојата мала мачка (this is my white cat) becomes: Ова се моите мали мачки. (these are my white cats).

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

The most common suffixes added on the adverbs are:

For masculine gender:  -/ (none)

example: мал брод (small boat)

For feminine gender: - a

example: мала куќа (small house)

For neuter gender: - o

example: мало дете (small child)

For plural: - и

мали играчки (small toys)


Here are some examples:
