Spanish adjectivesOne of the eight parts of speech, adjectives are a type of modifier; that is, they modify or describe nouns in a certain way, letting you know the size, shape, weight, color, nationality, or any of a myriad other possible qualities of nouns.




Demonstrative Adjectives

Spanish demonstrative adjectivesDemonstrative adjectives (this, that) are used to indicate a specific noun or nouns. In Spanish, they must agree with the noun(s) in gender and number, and there are 3 different sets: este, ese, aquel.


Demonstrative Pronouns

Spanish demonstrative pronounsDemonstrative pronouns (this one, that one, the one[s], these, those) refer to a previously-mentioned noun in a sentence. Spanish demonstrative pronouns are more complicated than their English counterparts, because there are three different sets and because they must agree in gender and number with the noun they replace.





Indefinite Pronouns

Spanish indefinite pronounsIndefinite pronouns are vague – they either refer to unspecific nouns (like un otro and algo) or make sweeping generalizations (cada uno, todo).
