Semantic type
quickinfo

The set of adjectives appearing in the partitive construction is neither equivalent to the set of adjectives appearing in the predicative construction, nor to the set of adjectives appearing in the attributive construction. Roughly, almost all adjectives can occur in the attributive construction: not predicative, not partitive, predicative, not partitive or not predicative, yet partitive.
