Words that indicate quantity are a common type of indefinite adjectives or quantifiers. They answer the question “How many?”
The following overview is based on the adjectives mucho, poco, and todo. It illustrates how the form of an adjective always corresponds to the noun it matches. Apply the concept of number as your ﬁrst step. The singular form of an adjective is used with the singular form of a noun, and the plural form of an adjective with a plural noun. Apply the concept of gender next. Use the masculine form of an adjective with a masculine noun, and the feminine form with a feminine noun.
Tengo poco trabajo ( I have little work).
He vivido aquí toda mi vida (I have lived here my whole live).
Todos los libros están en las estanterías (All the books are on the shelves).
Hay muchas personas en la calle (there are a lot people in the street).
|Remember: Indefinite adjectives can show quantity and are placed before the noun. They agree with their nouns in gender and number.|
