Degree: degree

Values: Cmp Dim Pos Sup

Degree of comparison is typically an inflectional feature of some adjectives and adverbs.

Most nouns and proper names in Afrikaans can be diminutivized, and the Degree feature is also used to mark diminutives of nouns.

Dim: diminutive form

A diminutive form is labelled as such; as its lemma, the non-diminutive form is given.

Examples

Pos: positive, first degree

This is the base form that merely states a quality of something, without comparing it to qualities of others. Note that although this degree is traditionally called “positive”, negative properties can be compared, too.

Examples

Cmp: comparative, second degree

The quality of one object is compared to the same quality of another object.

Examples

Sup: superlative, third degree

The quality of one object is compared to the same quality of all other objects within a set.
