Regular adjectives in Spanish follow this rule to form their plural:
- ending -os for masculine plural
- ending -as for feminine plural
Have a look and listen to these examples:
Los hombres son buenos.The men are good.
Ellas son mujeres bajas.They are short women.
Notice how the endings are different on each phrase, as the first one is refering to men (hombres) and the second one is refering to women (mujeres).
Here are more examples:
Miguel lleva pantalones cortos.Miguel is wearing shorts. [lit: short trousers]
Estas manzanas son rojas.These apples are red.
Tengo dos hijos guapos.I have two handsome boys.
Compramos calabazas pequeñas.We are buying small pumpkins.
