    Does the spanish language have adjectives?

    National Journal Online -- The Ninth Justice -- Grading Sotomayor's Senior Thesis

    Judge Sonia Sotomayor said in a 1996 speech at Princeton University's Third World Center (now called the Carl A. Fields Center) that when she arrived at Princeton in 1972 as her high school's valedictorian, "I found out that my Latina background had created difficulties in my writing that I needed to overcome. For example, in Spanish we do not have adjectives. A noun is described with a preposition.... My writing was stilted and overly complicated, my grammar and vocabulary skills weak."
    I'm sorry, that's amusing.

    I know. How weird. She must have meant something else.

    I thought so at first, but then she followed up with "A noun is described with a preposition"

    wtf?

    I'm not trying to get a dig in on her but it is quite perplexing why she would make that statement.

    The first thing that came to mind when I read that was "verde".

    Maybe she's dyslexic. Or whatever you call people who get their words all mixed up.

    Nah, she's just dumb.
    You guys act so surprised like you've never seen a dumb woman before.

    Though I've gotta admit that the dude who made her a judge is even dumber.

    Su argumento esta muy peor.

    "Peor" es un adjectivo.
