Lesson 4: Pronouns Editing Lesson 5: Adjectives Lesson 6: Adverbs

Adjectives decline very similarly to nouns, so it should not be too hard to learn these declensions if you've already learnt the noun declensions.

Strong AdjectivesEdit

Strong adjectives are used when they are not preceded by neither the definitive article ("the"), the demonstrative ("this"), or a possessive adjective ("my, thy, his, its, etc"). Only the positive ("much") and the superlative ("most") can take the strong declension because the comparative ("more") always takes the weak declension.

Strong adjectives decline like so:

(long-stemmed monosyllable) grēat - great, big; (short-stemmed monosyllable) til - good
masc. neut. fem.
nom. grēat-, til- grēat-, til-u
acc. grēat-ne, til-ne grēat, til grēat-e, til-e
gen. grēat-es, til-es grēat-re, til-re<
dat. grēat-es, til-es grēat-re, til-re

Weak AdjectivesEdit

As said before, weak adjectives are used after "the/that", "this", the possessive adjectives, and in the comparative form. The weak declension takes the same endings as the weak noun declension. There is absolutely no difference between long-stemmed and short-stemmed monosyllabic words in this declension.

{long-stemmed monosyllable) grēat - great, big; (short-stemmed mono-syllable) til - good
masc. neut. fem. pl.
nom. grēat-a, til-a grēat-e, til-e grēat-an
acc. grēat-an, til-an grēat-e, til-e grēat-an, til-an
gen. grēat-an, til-an grēat-ena, til-ena
dat. grēat-um, til-um
