Adjectives in Ng'and'ana can be a... hmmn... let's say 'ideal'
aggluginated onto a word, or just the word with the suffix marker 'u.
Umbr is 'darkness.'  Umbr'u is 'dark.'  Or, 'Anya' is 'female.'
'Anya'u' is 'feminine.'  A 'dark woman' is Umbr'any'adi,
Dark+Female+adi (a gender that marks the word as referring to a type
of person).

Need another example?  Obal is 'moon' or 'insanity.'  Umbr'obal is
'Dark+Insanity' or melancholy, while creativity is Mah'obal  or 'Good
insanity.'

Ama mah'obal, ae?
