How to use adjectives pronomially in a sentence!
Let's say you have an adjective.
こわい is a great adjective. Let's use that one.
Then, let's use it pronomially with a noun, いぬ (Yes. we all like dogs...right?). When you use an adjective pronomially, that means it comes BEFORE the noun.
Now we have: こわい いぬ, scary dog.
BUT... こわい いぬ isn't a complete sentence!
Let's throw that in a simple sentence. Like... "It's a scary dog."
polite form: こわい いぬ です。
plain form: こわい いぬ だ。
We can even make those a little fancier:
polite form: こわい いぬ ですね。
plain form: こわい いぬ だよ。
Now Let's try throwing our adjectives into a more complex sentence:
How about "My friend has a cute dog at his beautiful house." ??
ともだち の きれいな うち で かわいい いぬ が います。
Remember that when used in the pronomial, な-adjectives retain their な! When used in the predicate, they don't need the な!!
Let me know if you have any questions!!
I'll be on Blackboard IM today from 1 to 4 PM for my office hours!
