In the previous blog post 4 Language Table Part 02 I spoke about the noun and now we study a bit the adjectives and the first person, indicative present of the be verb. Verbs of being are called linking verbs because they link the subject and the predicative together, for example I (subject) am sensitive (predicative). The adjectives might have own attributes like very, briefly, much and so on. Attributes are most likely adverbs which don’t agree with the gender, number or case of the subject.

In English and Interlingua adjectives don’t take part in the agreement, in other words, adjectives are not in the same number, gender and case as the noun they refer. None of these languages have these 3 qualitities. In Italian adjectives are in the same number and gender but there are no cases. In Finnish adjectives are in the same number and case as nouns but there are no genders. 

Anyway, now you don’t have to think about much the agreement because I hope that you use the linking verb to be in the 1st person, indicative present, for example “I am shy“, “Io es timide“, “(Io) sono timido (if you’re a male); (Io) sono timida (if a female)” and “(Minä) olen ujo.” For further knowledge pick up the words from the table and build up own sentences. If you are not sure about your sentence put it in the quatation marks and copy the whole sentence with the quatation marks and paste it in the Google’s Search Field. If your sentence is correct you will get many articles where this sentence is showed to you in bold.
