Dal'qörian Resultant adjectives
These are adjectives that, in English, are placed 'after' the noun they modify and reflects a change that occurs by action of the verb on the noun:
- She wiped the glass clean. (The glass was dirty)
- He painted the fence white. (The fence was a different colour before he painted it)
If you place the adjectives before the noun, then this changes the meaning altogether:
- She wiped the clean glass. (The glass is already clean as she wipes it)
- He painted the white fence. (The fence is already white before he paints it)
In Dalcurian, a resultant adjective immediately 'follows' the verb, and where a pronoun is used, it 'precedes' the pronoun (unlike in English):
- Sia gä’ipr nørädn di gläj. (lit: She wiped clean the glass).
- Mæ gä’emblär etiri di peremitij. He painted white the fence.
- Sia gä’ipr nørädn tiÞ. She wiped clean it.
- Mæ gä’emblär etiri tiÞ. He painted white it.
