det store huset


Min nye hatt (mainly used in literary language) = den nye hatt min (ordinary speaking style)

Jeg liker disse pene bildene - I like theses nice pictures

Denne røde bilen er min - this red car is miner

Dette pene huset er mitt - this red house is mine

Adjektives take -e after words that describe quantity.
