I don't understand why this is "schwarzes" and not "schwarz." Or at the very least why isn't it "Schwarzen" in the accusative? Might be a dumb question, thanks!
You should check this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_declension#Mixed_inflection.5B6.5D.
It is the case of mixed inflection (after an indefinite article ein)
Just when I think I'm getting a handle on the four cases... lol. Thanks for the link wanderinglst!
this table is quite helpful http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/schwarz_%28Deklination%29
Check out this link" http://www.nthuleen.com/teach/grammar/adjektivendungenexpl.html ", one of our moderators posted it originally and I have found it extremely useful.
Okay, so as i understand it, it gets the same ending as das because kleid is a neutral noun. Not clear yet why this isn't accusative, except maybe that doesnt apply to adjectives in this position?
