Why "un petit chien" rather than "un chien petit"? My impression so far was that adjectives went after the noun in French.
Thanks! So for roughly 95% of adjectives, those characterizing Beauty, Age, Good or bad, or Size (BAGS) go in front, and all the others (shape, color, taste, nationality, religion, social class, personality, mood, etc.) follow.
There's no way to tell whether or not this sentence is masculine or feminine without context. There goes my heart. D:
as long as the gender of both matches it can be masc. or fem.
I wrote "un petite chien" - how is that wrong?
Petite is female and chien is male, the right answer must be "un petit chien" if male or "une petite chienne" if female
For some reason chien is not right but chienne is when they do not specify the gender. Is this normal?
No, it does not look normal.
Right, okay! Thanks Jason; I NOW UNDERSTAAND! If you hover over the words it tells you whether or not it's male/female!
