Now that you've digested the first part of the grammar of "Roumant", here's the second part. It deals now with adjectives and adverbs. THE ADJECTIVES: They are quite unoriginal compared to other Romance languages. They agree in gender and number with the noun they complete, the base form is the masculine singular, and forming plural and feminine follows basically the same rules as for nouns. A particularity is that adjectives often have the same form in masculine and feminine. As for their place, they are generally put after the noun they complete, but when the show an intrisic or remarquable quality, they are put in front of the noun they complete. The degrees of comparison: Of course, you can compare in "Roumant" as well as with other languages. The comparative: The comparative of superiority is regularly formed with the adverb mais /mE/: more + adjective. The comparative of equality is formed with the adverb tant /ta~/: as + adjective, and the comparative of inferiority is formed with mins /mE~/: less + adjective. The complement of the comparative is introduced with the conjunction come /kom/. The superlative: The absolute superlative ("very") is formed with the adverb mãg /ma~/: very, much + adjective, or more rarely with the suffix -îssime /'isim/. The relative superlatives are formed this way: - superiority: e/a/ès/as/o mais + adjective: the most + adjective - inferiority: e/a/ès/as/o mins + adjective: the least + adjective The preposition de /d@/ is used to introduce the complement of the superlative. If the superlative is placed after the noun it completes, the article is not repeated in front of the superlative (unlike French but like Spanish). Some irregular comparatives and superlatives: The following adjectives have irregular comparatives and superlatives of superiority: bouem /bwE~/: good, meirr /mEr/: better, e meirr /@ mEr/: the best mâou /'mau/: bad, peirr /pEr/: worse, e peirr /@ pEr/: the worst grand /gra~/: big, mairr /mEr/: bigger, e mairr /@ mEr/: the biggest pêque /pEk/: small, minrr /mE~r/: smaller, e minrr /@ mE~r/: the smallest THE ADVERBS: There are two ways of deriving an adverb from an adjective. The first, most frequent, and identical to many other Romance languages is to use the suffixe -mente /'ma~t/ added to the feminine form of the adverb. Adjectives ending in -ant, -ent or -int make their corresponding adverbs respectively in -ammente, -emmente /a~'ma~t/ and -immente /E~'ma~t/. The second way, rarer, consists in adding the suffix -é /'e/ to the root of the adjective. This form is often used with already long adjectives, and with the ordinal numbers. Of course, some derived adverbs have irregular formations: bouem -> biem /bjE~/: well mâou -> mau /mo/: badly Also, sometimes the adjective is used adverbially without change. Some other adverbs: Some adverbs of time: quend /ka~/: when? autoucâre /otu'kar/: now atone /a'ton/: then alhou /a'ju/: today alhêre /a'jEr/: yesterday maimme /mE~m/ tomorrow têne /tEn/: early tard /tar/: late tantêne /ta~'tEn/: immediately momenté /moma~'te/: soon primé /pri'me/: first dià /dja/: already diou /dju/: (for) a long time toudies /tu'di/: always jaims /ZE~/: never alant /a'la~/: before apouès /a'pwE/: after Some adverbs of place: encì /a~'si/: here (without movement) enlì /a~'li/: there (without movement) enlà /a~'la/: yonder (without movement) ennóv /a~'no/: where? (without movement) cì /si/: here (with movement, to be used with â: to or de: from) lì /li/: there (with movement, to be used with â: to or de: from) là /la/: yonder (with movement, to be used with â: to or de: from) óv /o/: where? (with movement, to be used with â: to or de: from) prox /prO/: near larg /lar/: far ennant /a~'na~/: in front empouès /a~'pwE/: behind ennim /a~'nE~/: inside emvouér /a~'vwe/: outside ennâout /a~'nau/: up embàz /a~'ba/: down ensùs /a~'sy/: above ensòv /a~'sO/: under Some adverbs of quantity and intensity: quemmãg /ka~'ma~/: how much?, how many? bastammente /basta~'ma~t/: enough qué /ke/: how!, what! tant /ta~/: as much, as many, so much, so many mãg /ma~/: a lot, much, many, very mais /mE/: more poev /p2/: little, few mins /mE~/: less de mais /d@ mE/ (put after what it completes): too much, too many um poev /9~ p2/: a little, a few Except 'de mais', all those adverbs can have a nominal complement preceeded with de: of (but de can be omitted, even if it's not frequent). Some adverbs of manner: casi /'kazi/: nearly asì /a'zi/: this way couc /ku/: therefore quêlemente /kEl'ma~t/: how? The degrees of comparison: They are formed like the degrees of comparison of the adjectives, using the same adverbs (but there is no form in -îssime). The relative superlatives must be preceeded with the neuter article o. Some irregular comparatives and superlatives: Just like the adjectives, there are irregular comparatives and superlatives of adverbs: biem /bjE~/: well, mis /mi/: better, o mis /o mi/: best mau /mo/: badly, pis /pi/: more badly, o pis /o pi/: worst grandemente /gra~d'ma~t/: highly, maiss /mEs/: more highly, o maiss /o mEs/: most highly pêquemente /pEk'ma~t/: "low-ly", minss /mE~s/: "more low-ly", o minss /o mE~s/: "most low-ly" mãg /ma~/: much, mais /mE/: more, o mais /o mE/: most poev /p2/: little, mins /mE~/: less, o mins /o mE~/: least Wow! I was thinking of putting also the pronouns with that, but that's a little too much I think. So I'll put the pronouns in another post. This is also a big part of the grammar, which is also a bit different from other Romance languages. Christophe.
