Geographical name as base
quickinfo

There are three suffixes that can be used to derive relational adjectives from geographical names. In the first place, there is the "autochthonous" suffix -er. An example is de Ljouwert-er krantethe newspaper of Ljouwert. However, if the geographical name which is referred to is not situated in the province of FryslânFriesland, the adjectival derivation of the geographical name takes the suffix -sk or its variant -ysk. An example is in Russysk wurdboeka Russian dictionary.
