Number Agreement

Most of the time, adding an "s" to the adjective ending is enough to make it plural. For example:

  • content becomes contents in the plural
  • contente becomes contentes in the plural

An adjective, ending with "x", remains the same in the plural. For example:

  • heureux remains heureux in the plural
  • but heureuse becomes heureuses in the plural

Feminine lente lentes

Feminine gourmande gourmandes
Masculine déçu déçus disappointed
