Modification by adjectives

The referential and concrete partitive nouns may be modified by attributive adjectives in the bare partitive construction.


The following example involves a referential partitive construction in which the referential and concrete partitive noun is modified by two attributive adjectives:

a. In grutte rûne doaze flikken
a big round box chocolate.drops
A big box of chocolate drops
b. In grutte fette klobbe bûter
a big fat lump butter
A big fat lump of butter
c. In lange flecht guozzen
a long flock geese
A long flock of geese

It stands to reason that the same holds for constructions joined by mei with or fol full.
