Adjectives are changed to reflect number and sometimes gender, if the gender makes a difference. For example, aren, which means new is the same for man and woman: Danen Aren, Dana Aren However, beautiful, which means different things for man and women, is changed: Danen Elenden, Dana Elenda However, a women who is "handsome" would be: Dana Elenden Thanks again for you enthusiastic reply! :-) Saran edorir, Matthew -- Dän, ë sarán edorir!
