placement of adjectives?

votes

I took basic Spanish more than a few years ago, and would appreciate it if someone could refresh my memory on this subject. When describing a noun/pronoun/subject of the sentence, where would the adjective be placed when writing/speaking in the Spanish language? Could someone remind if in the Spanish language the adjective comes after the noun, i.e. instead of using "failed transaction" it would read (in Spanish, of course, "transaction failed'"

Would this sentence:

Pablo, little baby

be translated as such:

Pablo, bebe pequeno

Or am I just wrong altogether'

I have a similar question. In calling a baby "bebe pequeno" can you substitute "bebito" or "bebita", and how is that spelled? Is that appropriate to call a baby?

Thanks,
Margo
