An adjective is a word that describes a noun (e.g. the big dog).
1. (complimentary) a. flattering María es muy aduladora pero sus halagos no son sinceros. Maria is very flattering but her compliments aren't sincere.
This means that the noun can be masculine or feminine, depending on the gender of person it refers to (e.g. el doctor, la doctora).
2. (obsequious person) a. flatterer Estoy cansada de aduladores. Quiero un hombre que no me quiera por mi fama. I am tired of flatterers. I want a man who doesn't love me for my fame. b. sycophant No me fío de los aduladores porque siempre tienen un interés oculto. I don't trust sycophants because they always have an ulterior motive.
