Spanish noob here - I just encountered this on Duolingo:
Felipe pinta su dormitorio azul.
Which translates to:
Felipe is painting his bedroom blue.
This is very confusing for me - I'm not familiar with linguistic terms so I don't even know what to search for! Basically, my problem is that I'm confused on how to say Felipe is painting his bedroom (the color) blue versus Felipe is painting his blue bedroom
That is, typically we would put the adjective after the noun, so "blue bedroom" is dormitorio azul. But in this situation we're not using azul as an adjective to describe the bedroom, but as a descriptor of what is being done with the bedroom.
So: (1) how would one say "Felipe is painting his blue bedroom", and (2) what are the rule(s) and/or context clues for knowing when an adjective is describing the noun versus the result of the action against the noun?
As an aside - if anyone can leave a comment letting me know the right linguistic terms are, I'd appreciate it. Can't search the web if you don't know the word you're searching for! :)
