Experience III, Lesson 14: Pronominal Adjectives

Learning to form the Pronominal Adjectives

There is a group of adjectives, called pronominal adjectives that form the same as the above demonstrative pronouns learned in last lesson. I.e. they are standard block 1 adjectives (-us, -a, -um) except for for being irregular in their genitive singular = "-ius" and dative singular = "-i"

There are nine of them, but they are important adjectives so they need to be learned:
