1020. 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: δίκαιος ἀνήρ the just man, τοῦ δικαίου ἀνδρός, τὼ δικαίω ἄνδρε, οἱ δίκαιοι ἄνδρες, etc., οὗτος ἀνήρ this man, τούτου τοῦ ἀνδρός, etc., φιλοῦσα θυγάτηρ the loving daughter. B. Predicate: καλὸς ἀγών the prize is glorious, ταῦτ᾽ ἐστὶν ἀληθῆ these things are true, ““αἱ ἄρισται δοκοῦσαι εἶναι φύσειςthe natures which seem to be bestX. M. 4.1.3.

On the agreement of demonstrative pronouns used adjectively with a predicate substantive, see 1239. For relative pronouns, see 2501.
