Irregular Adjectives

Some adjectives are irregular. In these cases, you cannot simply add an -e to make the word into a feminine adjective. You must actually change the spelling of the word:

beau > belle
blanc > blanche
bon > bonne
gros > grosse
long > longue
vieux > vieille
nouveau > nouvelle

Adjectives ending in -eux are formed with -euse in the feminine form:

joyeux > joyeuse
heureux > heureuse
