Portuguese Adjectives

Adjectives in Portuguese An adjective is a word whose main role is to modify a noun or pronoun, giving more information about the noun or pronoun's definition.

Portuguese, as with any Romance language, has the same adjective rules; that is why the adjectives in Portuguese language come after a noun. However, there are some important rules that you must keep in mind.

Note 1: The gender and number (singular or plural) of all adjectives must always agree with the accompanying noun.
