Oarsother, else
quickinfo

The adjectival quantifier oarsother, else displays a different behaviour in some respects compared to other partitive adjectives.

The definite partitive adjective shows variation between -e and -s inflection in case the nominal quantifier contains the definite article itthe or the demonstrative datthat. However, oarselse does not participate in this variation, but is required to take -e inflection only:

Example 1

c. Al it oar-e dat ik te hearren krige
all the other.PA that I to hear got
