  ADJECTIVE PARTICLE POSITIVE KOMPARATIVE SUPERLATIVE
good i devryn(y) devrin(e) najdevrin(e)
new i nvyn(y) nvin(e) najnvin(e)

A d j e c t i v e s ..are regular and it is very easy to recognize them, having always the suffix yn in singular and yny in plural. The "y" is pronounced as short Turkish dotless I (close back unrounded vowel). The genitive (possessive) particle [i] before an adjective is important. We don't use it if there is a preposition or any other case particle instead of. These special particles are pronounced together with the preceding word - e.g. dane i datyny [da:neji daSt1n1] = rainy days.

A R T I C L E S

as the definite article
ta the definite article after sibilants
y a indefinite article
yn an indefinite article before a vowel

Definite & indefinite article are used not very often in this constructed language. It is because they are not so important as e.g. in Romance or Germanic languages. You may use them as you please, but... The "as" should be (always) used in accusative, being at once an accusative particle and the definite article.

  ADVERBIAL ENDING POSITIVE KOMPARATIVE SUPERLATIVE
well o devro devreno najdevreno
newly o nvo nveno najnveno

There are two groups of adverbs in Slavisk: The regular ones always end with o (being created from adjectives: nvyn = new nvo = newly), irregular adverbs mostly end with a or any other vowel and consonant (very seldom). We can cautiously compare both adverbial groups: But those irregular adverbs only with auxiliary adverbs vie (= more) and najvie (= the most) or in descending order: mine (= less) and najmine (= the least).
