Some adjectives can be formed by adding the suffix –able to a verb, such as comfortable from the verb 'comfort'. In some languages, the form of an adjective can change depending on the gender, number, or case of the noun it modifies. In English, adjectives come before the nouns they modify, but in some other languages, such as Spanish and French, the adjective follows the noun.
