Now you can say in four languages: He is a boy. She is a girl. He is the tall boy. She is the beautiful girl.

You are not able to see in the table that “ragazzo” demands the “un” indefinite article form. Usually descriptive adjectives follow the noun in Italian and they agree with the gender and number of the noun to which they refer.  The following abbreviations are used here: n = noun, adj = adjective, sg = singular, m = masculine, f = feminine, sm = singular masculine, sf = singular feminine and sv = singular verb.

For example: a beautiful house = “una casa bella” because the Italian word “casa” (house) is feminine the adjective must also be feminine. This example goes in Interlingua “un casa belle” and in Finnish “kaunis talo”.
