Chapter Summary

Most adjectives follow the noun they modify. There are usually separate forms for adjectives which modify masculine and feminine nouns, as well as a common plural. An adjective can be used without a noun. Adjectives are, like nouns, divided into two classes. Class I contains the "native" stock and adapted borrowings, while Class II the unadapted borrowed adjectives. This chapter provides a list of sampling of the many unadapted loanwords which are used as adjectives in ANA, which lack any marking for number or gender. It also provides examples of loanwords which have been partially adapted to ANA Class I morphology.

Keywords:adapted borrowings; adjectives; ANA class I morphology; unadapted borrowed adjectives
