There are several ways to combine adjectives in [い]. One is using suffixes like:

Announcement
  • です - Desu it is a polite way to end sentences with adjectives;
  • くないKunai it is a negative way of saying that something is not a given adjective;

To conjugate an adjective as negative, just replace the [い] with [くない]. See an example of a negative phase below:
