To modify a noun, if the noun has ה, then the adjective needs ה as well. If the noun doesn't have ה, don't add it to the adjective.
To make a declarative sentence, - if the noun has ה , just use the adjective and your sentence is declarative. If the noun doesn't have ה, then you need a copula to connect.
So for this case: בננה טעימה=a tasty banana the tasty banana=הבננה הטעימה הבננה טעימה = The banana is tasty בננה היא טעימה = A banana is tasty
In sentences like this how do you know the difference between say "the banana is tasty" or "tasty banana"? Context alone?
Thanks. I realized that almost as soon as I asked but good to have confirmation. I keep mistaking these somehow. Maybe asking will help cement it in my head!
The word בננה is grammatically feminine and singular, so it needs the feminine singular adjective טעימה
You mean before the banana? It's because banana is the subject here, and "את" is used for accusative mostly to show the object toward some action is directed against.
So for example if I said I want to drink water it would be, "אני רוצה שותה את מים?"
