    • 1995, Robert Beard, Lexeme-morpheme Base Morphology
      To the extent that predicate position is an indication of adjectivity, however, soon represents no radical departure from the norm.
    • 1999, Peter Ackema, Issues in Morphosyntax
      Note that the declensional schwa appearing under certain conditions on prenominal adjectives in Dutch is not a bona fide adjectivity marker.

      adjectivity is often indicated by the means of derivational morphology
