There are no adjectives as such in Klingon. Those notions expressed as adjectives in English (such as big, tired) are expressed by verbs in Klingon (be big, be tired). A verb expressing a state or quality can be used immediately following a noun to modify that noun.

puq Doy' tired child
puq child
Doy' be tired

Dujmey tIn big ships
Dujmey ships, vessels
tIn be big

The rover -qu' emphatic (section 4.3) may follow verbs functioning adjectivally. In this usage, it is usually translated very.

Dujmey tInqu' very big ships

wanI' ramqu' a very unimportant event
wanI' event, occurrence
ram be trivial, unimportant

If a Type 5 noun suffix is used (section 3.3.5), it follows the verb, which, when used to modify the noun in this way, can have no other suffix except the rover -qu' emphatic. The Type 5 noun suffix follows -qu'.

veng tInDaq in the big city
veng city
tIn be big
-Daq locative

veng tInqu'Daq in the very big city

When a noun has more than one adjective, one of the following forms is used: SuD Dargh 'ej wov or SuDbogh Dargh 'ej wovbogh

Descriptive verbs used adjectivally (i.e. after the noun) we have seen take only the suffixes -qu' (tInqu'), -Ha' (ngaDHa') and -be' (lo'laHbe').
