There are two basic types of 3-form adjectives in Romanian. The first type has one form each for masculine and feminine singulars, but only one plural form. These adjectives end in:

  • -c or -g, though there are some 4-form adjectives with these endings (sărac, harnic and pribeag are a few examples).
  • -esc have three forms.
  • -iu (sometimes -u)

The irregular adjective nou also has three forms.

The second type of 3-form adjective has one form each for masculine singular and plural, but only one feminine form, which is shared by the singular and plural. These adjectives end in -tor.
