Usage notes[edit]

  • The positive forms are declined regularly after an article or determiner, otherwise they remain uninflected.
  • The comparative form is indeclinable and cannot be preceded by articles or determiners. The superlative forms are declined in the normal way.
  • Comparation forms of mann are often used suppletively instead of wéineger, am wéinegsten.
