Arabic adjectives

Adjectives are generally used to describe nouns. Unlike English, adjectives in Arabic are placed after the noun. Adjectives in Arabic agree with the noun they describe. This means that adjectives that describe a feminine noun have a special form. If the noun is definite '(i.e. 'a big house' versus 'the big house')', the adjective carries the definite article as well.
