German : the extended adjective

German : the extended adjective

In German a long adjectival phrase may be used between an article and a noun, where English would require a whole clause.

The phrase will usually end with a present or past participle declined adjectivally and is also known as the extended adjective.

eg. Der von Ihnen geschickte Stadtplan war sehr nützlich.
