STYRÁSH ADJECTIVES

NOUNS SIGNIFYING QUALITY OR CONDITION
ADJECTIVES SIGNIFYING POSSESSION - ADJECTIVES SIGNIFYING LIKENESS

Adjectives are used to modify nouns, providing additional information about them. Unlike verbs and nouns, Styrásh adjectives are not inflected. They are usually found adjacent to the nouns they are modifying, or with a linking verb like styrán “to be” or narán “to become”.

Nouns Signifying Quality or Condition. There are a number of endings that, when added to an adjective, produce a noun that names the quality or condition associated with the adjective. The most common of these appears to be -erá, though it varies somewhat between dialects. Nouns produced by -erá have the feminine gender. Also, if the adjective ends with the vowels i or e, the vowel is deleted before -erá is added.

Adjectives Signifying Possession. It is also possible to convert many nouns into adjectives by adding the ending -cín to their uninflected forms, which adds a meaning of “full of” or “in possession of”.

Adjectives Signifying Likeness. Another way to convert nouns into adjectives is to add the ending -én to their uninflected forms. This adds the meaning of "being like" or "having the quality of". It is commonly used to create adjectives that describe material properties, like the Tharian adjectives "metallic" or "wooden", though other uses are possible as well.

The ending may sometimes also appear as -thén. There is no fixed pattern regarding when to use each form, though it seems more common to find -thén when the original noun ends in a vowel, and -én when it ends in a consonant. Return to the top
