Folksprak/Grammar/Adjectives and Adverbs

Adjectives and Adverbs edit

Adjectives do not change and stand between article and noun.

  • de grot hus (the big house)
  • din ny frend (your new friend)

Adverbs describing adjectives precede them. They are alike in form.

  • de hel bok (the whole book) [hel as an adjective]
  • de hel ny bok (the wholly new book) [hel as an adverb]

Adverbs describing verbs are preceded by them.

  • Ik slap god. (I sleep well.) [god is preceded by slap]

Comparison edit

Adjectives and adverbs form comparatives and superlatives with the adverbs mær and mæst.

  • grot (great)
  • mær grot (greater)
  • mæst grot (greatest)
