In Japanese, there are exactly three い-adjectives which sometimes think they are a な-adjective when appearing in front of a noun.
These adjecives are 大きい and 小さい, which mean big and small respectively,
and おかしい, which means funny or strange.
When we write these adjectives in front of a noun, we can write them in two ways, as shown in the table below.
|A big car
|A small car
|A strange car
This behavior can only occur in front of a noun. In all other cases, these adjectives are treated as い-adjectives only.
