Listen to the AUDIO below - Get PDF - Play online - Paper & Pencil game

  • The plural of most adjectives is formed by adding an –S to the singular adjective.

grand --> grands                        grande --> grandes (big, tall)

petit --> petits                             petite --> petites (short, small)

bon --> bons                                bonne --> bonnes (good)

bleu --> bleus                               bleue --> bleues (blue)

However, there are other rules.

  • Adjectives ending in –s in the singular form stay the same in the plural form.

français --> français (French)

gras --> gras (fat)

  • Adjectives ending in –x in the singular form stay the same in the plural form.

heureux -->heureux (happy)

peureux -->peureux (fearful)

merveilleux -->merveilleux (marvellous)

  • Some adjectives ending in –eu in the singular form take an –x in the plural form. Bleu is an exception.

hébreu -->hébreux (Hebrew)

  • Adjectives ending in –eau in the singular form take an –x in the plural form.

beau -->beaux (beautiful)

  • Some adjectives ending in –al in the singular form become –aux in the plural form.

royal -->royaux (royal)

légal -->légaux (legal)

And last, but not least, there are the colors. They take an –s most of the time, except in 2 instances:

  • when the color is also a fruit or a vegetable, the plural form remains masculine and singular

une jupe orange --> deux jupes orange (two orange skirts)

  • when there are 2 compound colors, the plural form remains masculine and singular

une jupe bleu clair --> deux jupes bleu clair (two light blue skirts)
