Spanish language Spanish Indefinite Adjectives ~ Adjetivos indefinidos

Affirmative indefinite adjectives are used to modify nouns in a unspecific sense.

Todos los libros son buenos. All of the books are good.
Cada estudiante debe hablar.    Each student must speak.
Hay otras posibilidades. There are other possibilities.
Quiero varias cosas. I want several things.

The Spanish indefinite adjectives are



algún/alguna some, a few 1
cada each 2
cierto certain 1
diverso various 1
mucho many, much, a lot 1
otro other 1
poco few, a little 1
tal some, any 3
todo all 1
varios several, some 4


1 These pronouns have four different forms and agree in gender and number with the nouns they modify.
Veo a algunos hombres. I see some men.
Tiene mucha libertad. He has a lot of freedom.
2 Cada is invariable - it is followed by a singular noun and the third personal singular verb form.
Cada país tiene sus proprias tradiciones. Each country has its own traditions.
Quiero mirar cada coche. I want to look at each car.
3 Tal has only singular and plural forms: tal, tales
No hay tal cosa. There's no such thing.
Tales ideas nos ayudarán. Such ideas will help us.
4 Varios has only masculine and feminine plural forms: varios, varias
Tengo varios libros. I have several books.
Compré varias flores. I bought several flowers.
5 Unlike most Spanish adjectives, indefinite adjectives precede the noun they modify.
The Spanish indefinite article + noun can be replaced with the indefinite pronoun (lesson coming soon).
