Most descriptive adjectives are placed after the noun they modify. These normally have an analytical meaning, in that they classify the noun into a certain category.
These types of adjectives include shape, color, taste, nationality, religion, social class, and other adjectives that describe things like personality and mood.
In addition, present participles and past participles used as adjectives are always placed after the noun.
Certain adjectives are placed before the noun, some which you can memorize with the acronym "BAGS": Beauty Age Good and bad Size
Finally, Some adjectives have both a figurative and an analytic (literal) sense and can thus be placed on either side of the noun. When the adjective is figurative, it goes before the noun, and when it's analytic, it goes after the noun.
Exemple : Figurative: mes vertes années my green (fruitful) years Literal: des légumes verts green vegetables
I can only hear this sentence as "La petite tomate rouge" (The small red tomato). Is the pronunciation for this sentence missing the word "est"? If it is perfectly correct and sounds similar to "La petite tomate rouge", how can I ever tell both sentences apart when I listen to this sentence?
Petit is used with a masculine noun, e.g. un petit garçon
Petite is used with a feminine noun, e.g. une petite fille
It means 'small'.
