3.5 Formation of the plural of the adjectives

We have already said that the adjectives have to be adjusted to the gender and number of the nouns, they refer to. Then it is logical that there are always four forms of an adjective:
Singular - masculine; singular - feminine, plural - masculine; plural - feminine

The pronunciation of the plural is mostly identical with the singular, which makes things easier. The plural form of the feminine form is also easy, because it is formed by adding an -s.

  Example feminine plural forms      
une femme heureuse des femmes heureuses
    a woman happy women happy
  une femme contente des femmes contentes
    a woman content women content
  une femme indulgente des femmes indulgentes
    a woman noble women noble
  une femme jalouse des femmes jalouses
    a woman jealous women jealous
  une vieille femme des vieilles femmes
    an old woman old women
  une femme italienne des femmes italiennes
    a woman Italian women Italian
