Italian adjectives may be found before or after the nouns they modify, depending on various factors. Generally speaking, descriptive adjectives follow nouns, while limiting adjectives precede nouns.
One of the eight parts of speech, adjectives are a type of modifier; that is, they modify or describe nouns in a certain way, letting you know the size, shape, weight, color, nationality, or any of a myriad other possible qualities of nouns.
When describing someone as capable of doing or determined to do something, a preposition is required between the adjective and verb. In Italian, the choice of preposition depends on the adjective that precedes it, not the verb that follows.
Adverbs of manner express how the action of a verb occurs. In English, the vast majority of adverbs of manner end in -ly, whereas in Italian, they mostly end in -mente. They are usually created from adjectives.
Demonstrative adjectives (this, that) are used to indicate a specific noun or nouns. In Italian, they must agree with the noun(s) in number and sometimes gender: questo, quella, quei ….
Interrogative adjectives ask the questions "what," "which," and "how much/many."
The past participle is essential in the creation of compound verb tenses/moods and the passive voice, and it can also be used as an adjective.
Italian possessive adjectives are used in front of nouns to indicate to whom or to what those nouns belong. They are considerably more complicated than English possessive adjectives because Italian has many different forms depending on the gender and number of the possessed noun.
