Lesson

In simple terms, an adjective is a word that describes a noun. For example, Αγαθος meaning "good" is an adjective.

Declensions

In Koine Greek, unlike English, adjectives change in form depending upon the way in which their noun is used in a sentence. An adjective needs to match the noun it describes in case, gender and number.

Uses of an adjective

Attributive

Predicative

Substantive

Adjectival uses of prepositional phrases

It is possible in Greek for a prepositional phrase to function as either an attributive adjective or a substantive adjective. By inserting the prepositional phrase between the definite article and the noun, the prepositional phrase becomes an attributive adjective.
