Spanish Noun:Apócopes: Un buen coche, un gran coche
Pronunciation:Oon booayn coh-chay, Oon grahn coh-chay
Don’t forget to shorten these adjectives!, when saying them first. Many adjectives, such as the very popular ‘bueno’ [good] y ‘grande’ [big] are often used before the noun.
In this cases they are to be shortened by taking the last vowel off, as in ‘buen’ and ‘gran’. «If you forget, you’ll regret» because saying or writing ‘un bueno’ or ‘un grande’ sure will sound awful to locals.
Example: Es un gran hijo
Translation: He is a great son
