Participles and infinitives as adjectives

The verbal paradigm has three forms which may be used in positions in which adjectives appear: past participles such as opslein stored in opsleine gegevens stored data, present participles such as bloeiend flowering in wat bloeiends something flowering and te-infinitives such as op te slaan to be stored in op te slane gegevens data 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
