Participles and infinitives as adjectives
quickinfo

The verbal paradigm has three forms which may be used in positions in which adjectives appear: past participles such as opsleinstored in opsleine gegevensstored data, present participles such as bloeiendflowering in wat bloeiendssomething flowering and te-infinitives such as op te slaanto be stored in op te slane gegevensdata to be stored. These forms may or may not appear in the following four constructions, which are referred to as the four adjectival key constructions:

  • Attributive construction
  • Complementive predicative construction
  • Partitive construction
  • Adverbial construction
