To express an exclamation starting with what a + [noun]
in French, you will use the exclamative adjective quel + [nom]
Also note that quel agrees in gender and number with the noun it refers to: quel, quelle, quels, quelles.
Quel + [noun]
can also be used in a question
to mean Which [thing]?
. The only way to distinguish the two uses is context
: you wouldn't say Which beautiful dress !
