Adjectives

Adjectives share most characteristic features with nouns: they belong to a class (I or II), and they can be marked for number and case. When modifying a noun, an adjective goes before it, and agrees with it in number and case.

In addition, most adjectives have several stems.

Basic          -0      ett     ‘big’
Augmentative   -um     ettum   ‘bigger’
Superlative    -ās     ettās   ‘biggest’
Equative       -izm    ettizm  ‘as big’
Diminutive     -ūr     ettūr   ‘less big’

All stems besides the basic one are declined as Class I.
