Hi I have a little problem with adjectives.

What is the rule for the use of adjectives in plural nouns

Do I have to say: They are attractive or they are attactives.

They are cute! or they are cutes!

I'm happy and they are happy!!!! or happies!!!

Please, explain me I'm getting crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi KLB,

so i guess it is wrong to say "instructions manual", and the correct way to say it would be "instruction manual"?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Athletics is a noun meaning the aggregate of athletic activities. Athletics carnival is probably mistranslated from the translation of athletics meet.
To Silversand:

in English, adjectives are always single?

do you have a reference to that rule???
"Instruction" is a noun, not an adjective. As a noun it can correctly be used in the singular and plural forms.

Okay, but when a noun is used as modifier (inthe role of an ajective), it tends to be used in the singular. That's what the person asked about in this thread.

It's an instruction manual, not an instructions manual.
