Re: adjectives, ???

In a message dated 4/7/99 11:03:09 AM Eastern Daylight Time, 

<< Question ?
 	Does this mean that if there is a syntactic marker (noun type 5), then
 only -qu may be use, and if there is not a syntactic marker, then any of
 the other verb suffixes may be used ? >>

This is the quote from TKD, section 4.4, page 50.
"If a Type 5 noun suffix is used (section 3.3.5), it follows the verb, which, 
when used to modify the noun in this way, can have no other suffix except the 
rover -qu' emphatic. The Type 5 noun suffix follows -qu'."

An example from TKD is

veng tInDaq - in the big city
veng tInqu'Daq - in the very big city

Hope this helps somewhat.
