Geographical name as base

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 krante the newspaper of Ljouwert. However, if the geographical name which is referred to is not situated in the province of Fryslân Friesland, the adjectival derivation of the geographical name takes the suffix -sk or its variant -ysk. An example is in Russysk wurdboek a Russian dictionary.
