Het is koud: It's cold.

But: "het is aan de koude kant" this sentence means it is a little bit cold/chill/not warm.

So you want to add an e:

De koude kant.
Hoi Chillaz!

It should be like this:

The adjective (e.g. 'prachtig') would only be without an 'e' at the end
in case you are dealing on a "het"-woord substantive (a neuter/neutrum e.g. 'het weer' = the weather)
in combination with an indefinite article ('een'): 'een prachtig weer'.
But with an definite article ('het' or 'de') it would be 'het prachtige weer'.
Note1: all diminutive form words are "het"-words ('de joint' -> 'het jointje', 'het weer' -> 'het weertje' ...) and are also in danger to be used in combi with adjectives zonder 'e'! :wink:
Note2: if 'prachtig' would be used as an adverb instead, it's always without 'e' ('het weertje is prachtig!', 'de zomer is mooi' ...)

..."Het is een mooie taal!" :shock: Haha! :lol:
:wtf: :mrgreen:

That's a predicative adjective, not an adverb.
