[top]Adjectives - Basic Forms


In  Mesyar, adjectives are conjugated depending on the class and number of the noun that it is refering to. The different classes involved in the conjugation of adjectives are the animacy (person, animal or inanimate), the number (singular and plural), and the visibility (visible or not visible) of the noun. The 'unknown' class is used when the noun that the adjective is referring to is not know by the speaker (number or animacy). Adjective conjugation in Mesyar, follows a set of rules, but really often, adjectives are irregular and follow no rule, that is why some adjectives need to be memorized. In this case (see the table below), the adjective 'galo' (weak) is irregular in only one case, its singular animal invisible form, in this case, instead of eliminating the -o and adding -ås, 'galo' is conjugated into gåma.
Note: The infinitive form of an adjective in Mesyar is always ending in -o, the same as the singular person visible form.
Note: The adjectival form of a verb also needs to be conjugated.
Note: Adjectives ALWAYS go after the noun, there is no exception to the rule.

Articles also change depending on other factors, if it is negative, superlative, adverbial and conditional.
The conditional form of an adjective is used when an adjective is being in a conditional phrase, for example "You are nice if you hug me," in this case, 'nice' would be conjugated as conditional.
Note: When applying this extra forms, there is an order - CLASS, NUMBER & VISIBILITY(NEG(COND(SUP/ADV))
