Adjectifs démonstratifs

February 4, 2012

Demonstrative adjectives (called also “demonstrative determiners”) are used to point out things or people :

  • Ce livre est très intéressant.
  • This book is very interesting.
  • यह किताब बहुत दिलचस्प है।

They agree in number and gender with the noun they introduce :

Singulier

Pluriel

Masculin

Ce livre*

Cet appartement*

Ces livres

Ces appartements

Féminin

Cette chanson

Cette actrice

Ces chansons

Ces actrices

*Ce” is used with a masculine noun starting with a consonant and “cet” with a masculine noun starting with a vowel.

Note that in French, there is no differentiation between “this” and “that”, both can be translated by “ce”/”cet”/”cette”. To differentiate between something/someone situated close to the person speaking (“this”/यह) and something/someone situated far away (“that”/वह), -ci and -là can be added after the noun : Ce livre-ci (this book) ; ce livre-là (that book).
