Genuine Service for all divine students..A predicate adjective follows a verb such as sein (to be) or werden (to become) and modifies the subject of the sentence. No ending is required on predicate adjectives.

Meine Tante ist ziemlich alt.                                          My aunt is rather old.
Ein Freund von mir wurde reich.                                 A friend of mine became rich.

Except for in the use of predicate adjectives, English and German differ greatly in how adjectives are used. German requires specific adjective endings for adjectives that directly modify nouns.

Adjectives in the nominative case should be looked at carefully because the noun’s gender plays a key role in the choice of adjective endings. When a der word precedes the adjective, the der word indicates the noun’s gender. Adjectives that follow der words have an -e ending. When an ein word precedes the adjective, the adjective identifies the noun’s gender.
