Limiting Adjectives


I. Theory

Zum Abendessen trinke ich etwas Bier.
I drink some beer with dinner.


Zum Abendessen trinke ich etwas kaltes Bier.
I drink some cold beer with dinner.

Wir haben viel Zeit.
We have a lot of time.

Vielen Dank!*
Thank you very much!

*here, we see an exception to the no-ending rule.
