Taken at face value, sentences like the following show that APs can be the subject of a predication:

Example 1

a. Ljochtread is moai mar wat reader is moaier
light.red is nice but a.little redder is nicer
Light red is nice, but a little redder is nicer
b. Ik fyn koarter better
I find shorter better
I like shorter more

AP-subjects are characteristically possible when the AP-predicate is an evaluative predicate such as nice.
