Colours are adjectives We use colours to describe various things Colours always come after the word that they describe Examples: Un livre rouge (A red book) Un cahier violet (A purple notebook) Un gomme blanc ( A white eraser)
If what is described is masculine, the color will be masculine. If what is described is feminine, then the color will become feminine as well. MasculineFeminine Un livre violet Une livre violete Un gomme vertUne gomme verte
Making colors feminine Most colors take an e in the feminine form except marron and chocolat. This is also the case for two- word colours such as bleu-marine(navy blue), vert- pale( light green). Those already ending in e in the masculine form do not change in the feminine. The one except is blanc. This changes to blanche not blance.
Making colours plural When the thing described is plural, the colour becomes plural as well. Marron and orange never change!!! un tableau blanc des tableaux blancs une porte blanche des portes blanches
