This chapter discusses attributively used adjectives. Section 5.1 starts with a comprehensive discussion of their inflection. Section 5.2 will show that attributive adjectives are normally placed between the determiner and the head noun, and will also discuss their placement with respect to some other elements that occupy the prenominal field. Section 5.3 will continue by showing that the placement of more complex attributively used APs is more flexible than that of less complex ones. Section 5.4 provides a discussion of N-ellipsis, that is, cases in which the attributive adjective is not accompanied by a (morphologically realized) noun. Section 5.5 concludes with a discussion of the syntax of co-occurring adjectives.
