Unit seven Vowel-Declension Adjectives; Attribution and Predication Preliminaries A. Adjectives. An adjective (Greek ἐπίθετον, Latin adiectivum, “word additional to [a noun]”) is the a part of speech that modifies (or describes or qualifies) a noun. Examples: the big e-book; The foodstuff is nice. in lots of languages adjectives are inflected to mark harmony with the nouns they alter. English has no inflection displaying gender, quantity, and case of adjectives (the huge apartment, the massive men), yet inflection in quantity and gender happens, for example, in Spanish, French, and Italian (e. g. , French un vieux livre vs. l. a. vieille nourrice). In Greek, as in Latin or German, adjectives are inflected to point not just gender and quantity, but in addition case. one other attribute of adjectives is they have 3 levels. The confident measure is the normal shape. The comparative measure is used to check one noun with one other in regard to their ownership of an identical caliber: for instance, English more desirable, extra virtuous. The superlative measure is used to mark an extra or supremacy within the ownership of a high quality: for example, English most powerful, so much virtuous. The formation of the comparative and superlative levels is typically known as comparability of adjectives (discussed in Unit 31).
