ADJ: adjective


The adjective is in Ancient Greek the PoS that normally agrees with a nominal in Gender, Number, and Case. The adjective can be used attributively or predicatively.

Attributive adjective

The attributive adjective directly modifies a nominal (Smyth 1920: 272-275).


Predicative adjective

The predicative adjective depends on the copula or a copular verb (Smyth 1920: 275-278). Note that there are pecularities concerning the position of the attributive adjective (Smyth 1920: 295-297).
