Adjectives - Gender and Number in the Nominative Case

In English adjectives are invariable but in Russian, adjectives agree with the noun they describe in gender, number and case. In this table you will find all possible endings of a Russian adjective in the Nominative Case.

   - ый
   - ий
   - ой

   - ний

   - ая
   - яя

   - ое
   - ее

   - ые
   - ие


  новый стол (new table)
  маленький стол (small table)
  большой стол (big table)
  последний стол
(last table)

  новая лампа (new lamp)
  последняя лампа (last lamp)

  новое окно (new window)
  хорошее окно
(good window)

  новые столы (new tables)
  хорошие лампы
(good tables)

Remember! You cannot write the letter ы after г, к, х, ж, ч, ш or щ.
That is why adjectives with stems ending in any of those letters have
the ending ий instead of ый (or ие instead of ые in plural).
            For example: хороший, маленький, большие
Remember! You cannot write an unstressed о after ж, ч, ш, щ or ц.
That is why Russian adjectives with stems ending in those letters
have the ending ее instead of ое.

            For example: хорошее
