ADJ: adjective

Definition

Adjectives are words that typically modify nouns and specify their properties or attributes. They may also function as predicates, as in

Ця машина є зелена.  “The car is green.”

The ADJ tag is intended for ordinary adjectives only. See DET for determiners and NUM for cardinal numerals.

In accord with the UD approach, adjectival ordinal numerals (перший, сьомий, стошістдесятий)  are tagged as adjectives, although the traditional grammar classifies them as numerals. They behave like adjectives both morphologically and syntactically, with the exception that they cannot be compared and negated.

Most Ukrainian adjectives inflect for uk-feat/Gender (великий – велика – велике)  “big”, uk-feat/Number (великий – великі),  and uk-feat/Case (великий – великого – великому – великим – великім),  uk-feat/Degree (великий – більший – найбільший).
