Danish adjectives must agree in gender and number with the nouns they describe. Adjectives are placed before the noun, as in English. However, the adjectives add endings depending on indefinite or definite use. If indefinite, common nouns usually add nothing, neuter nouns add -t and plural nouns add -e. If definite, many adjectives add -e to all forms. If the definite article is used before the adjective and noun, den, det and de are used in place of the regular articles.
|a beautiful car||en flot bil||the beautiful car||den flotte bil|
|a beautiful house||et flot hus||the beautiful house||det flotte hus|
|beautiful cars||flotte bilar||the beautiful cars||de flotte biler|
|lille||lille||små||little / small|
Forming the comparative and superlative of adjectives in Danish is very similar to English. Most adjectives add -ere to the adjective for the comparative and -est(e) for the superlative. Some adjectives add nothing to the adjective, but use mere or mest (more or most) before the adjective.
|good - better - best||god||bedre||bedst|
|bad - worse - worst||slem(t)||værre||værst|
|bad - less good - least good||dårlig||slemmere||slemmest|
|few - fewer - fewest||få||færre||færrest|
|small - smaller - smallest||lille||mindre||mindst|
|many - more - most||mange||flere||flest|
|much - more - most||meget||mere||mest|
|old - older - oldest||gammel||ældre||ældst|
