Japanese has a way of putting adjectives together, such as, the "i" adjectives and the "na" adjectives. The "i" adjectives end with the sound of the "i", such as, "atusi," which means hot, "tsumetai," which means cold, and, "kii," whichi means big. When using, "i," to modify a noun, you just place the "i" you place it before the noun, which you would like to modify. Other adjectives that don't end in "i" will end in "na." You use the "na" adjectives to modify nouns, when, you insert the "na" between the adjective and the noun.
Kirei - pretty, is an exception. It will end in "i", but, it is a "na"
