Concord.—An adjective agrees with its substantive in gender, number, and case. This holds true also of the article, adjective pronouns, and participles: thus, A. Attributive: ὁ δίκαιος ἀνήρ the just man, τοῦ δικαίου ἀνδρός, τὼ δικαίω ἄνδρε, οἱ δίκαιοι ἄνδρες, etc., οὗτος ὁ ἀνήρ this man, τούτου τοῦ ἀνδρός, etc., ἡ φιλοῦσα θυγάτηρ the loving daughter. B. Predicate: καλὸς ὁ ἀγών the prize is glorious, ταῦτ' ἐστὶν ἀληθῆ these things are true, αἱ ἄρισται δοκοῦσαι εἶναι φύσεις the natures which seem to be best X. M. 4.1.3.

On the agreement of demonstrative pronouns used adjectively with a predicate substantive, see cross1239. For relative pronouns, see cross2501.
