Slovak Adjectives

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

a)    Masculine to feminine and neutral example:

Toto je môj malý synček (this is my little son) becomes: Toto je moja malá dcerka (this is my little daughter). Toto je moje malé auto. (this is my little car).

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

b)    Singular to plural example:

Toto je moja biela mačka (this is my white cat) becomes: Toto sú moje biele mačky (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.


Here are some examples:
