Marathi Adjectives

Learning the Marathi 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 Marathi language. But first we need to know what the role of Adjectives is in the structure of the grammar in Marathi.

Marathi 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 Marathi an adjective should agree in gender and plural with the noun. For example:

a)    Masculine to feminine example:

Ha majha chhota mulaga aahe (this is my little son) becomes: He majhi chhoti mulagi aahe (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:

He pandhari manjar majhi aahe(this is my white cat) becomes: Hya pandharya manjari majhya aahet(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:
