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。

HOW TO USE AN ADJECTIVE IN THE PREDICATE OF A SENTENCE!

When you use an adjective in the predicate, it appears AFTER the noun. For example:


いぬ は とても かわいい です。

or

いぬ は こわく ありません。

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!!
