EN E ES EN
EN EN EN EN

D: REMEMBER – Something needs to take the ending of the article

III: Strukturen – Adjective Endings – no article

A: Adjective Endings that do not follow der or ein words must have endings that show the gender, number, and case of the nouns they modify.

B: Endings are the same as the forms of the definite articles with two exceptions

1: Masculine and neuter in the genitive case.

a) -en instead of –es

b) HINT: The “s” or “es” on the noun shows the gender, number, and case, so the adjective is off the hook.

C: Adjective Endings Chart:

ER E ES E
EN E ES E
EM ER EM EN
EN ER EN ER

IF TIME: S. 60 / A, B, C
