Usage notes[edit]

  • Some language related books prescribe uninflected forms like das türkis Kleid and not das türkise/türkisene Kleid,[1] and some even state that some color adjectives like türkis can't be used attributively, so one can say das Kleid ist türkis but not das türkis (türkise/türkisene) Kleid.[2]
