* Lesson XII – Comparsions

This lesson will be easier than previous ones.

Adjectives

Sometimes, as in the first statement of this lesson, we need to compare some properties. Using LOS equivalent to english word 'more' makes statements too complex. There is more laconical way to compare something by using suffix -ar. The superative degree is formed by suffix -az.

Examples
hîs (quick) hîsar snû (quickier than) hîsaz (the quickiest)
bûrz* (dark) bûrzar snû (darker than) bûrzaz (the darkest)
gothûrz** (powerful) gothûrzar snû (more powerful than) gothûrzaz (the most powerful)

* Note that -ûrz here isn't an adjective's suffix but a part of word's stem.

** It is a suffix here but -ar and -az are accumulated to -ûrz. Note that despite the syllabe count degrees of comparsions always form the same way.


Adverbs

Adverbs are compared identically to adjectives, but they don't have a superative degree of comparsion. Here is an example:

hîsarz (quickly) hîsarzar snû (more quickly than)

Exercise

Has anyone here ever tried the lessons? I think some of them may need some corrections and updates.  Let me know your thoughts.

The Swedish LARP-orcish Svartiska was not really created by a single LARP-group but by the community of orc-larpers where different groups created different dialects.
