Shortened Adjectives

Some adjectives are can be placed before nouns. Often they change in meaning and spelling. For example, gran placed before either a masculine or feminine singular noun means great, not big. If mal is placed before a noun, it means really evil, not just bad. If these adjectives are placed before masculine singular nouns, they are shortened. Examples:
good/buen, bad/mal, some,any/algún, none/ningún,
first/primer, third/tercer.
