1.3.2.Set-denoting adjectives

This section discusses set-denoting adjectives from a set-theoretic point of view. Section will start with the set-theoretic difference between the attributive and predicative use of the adjective, and will also briefly discuss the adverbial use of these adjectives. Although making more semantic distinctions does not result in a further systematic subdivision of the set-denoting adjectives, Section will discuss some of these distinctions since they will be useful in describing the morphological and syntactic properties of the set-denoting adjectives. Section concludes by providing a morphological classification of the set-denoting adjectives.
