5.1. Inflection

Adjectives in attributive position are inflected. The inflectional ending of attributive adjectives (-e or -∅) depends on various factors, which are summarized in (1) and will be discussed in Section 5.1.1. Section 5.1.2 will subsequently discuss the numerous exceptions to the general pattern.

Example 1
Factors determining attributive inflection:
a. gender of the head noun
b. (in)definiteness of the noun phrase
c. number of the noun
d. phonological properties of the attributive adjective
