Example sentences for: adjectival

How can you use “adjectival” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The adjectival suffix - al is often slapped on words that already are adjectives.

  • Had they consulted Jaeger, they would have found that Orcinus is the adjectival form of Orcus ; the Latin name for Hades.

  • The apposition is to be distinguished from the adjectival modifier such as Barney's Good food in a Country Atmosphere , which serves to describe more precisely the type of establishment the motorist is approaching.

  • The latter is not readily analyzable by normal parsing, for if we are drawn to retain the adjectival nature of stiff (instead of conceding that it might be used as an adverb), we are obliged to characterize worried as having taken on the guise of a copula.

  • It surely evolved from earlier use in more literal, straightforward contexts (for instance, to describe the sound of an automobile engine or a musical performance) and ultimately from the long-established and nonjudgmental phrase to make noises (that is, to express oneself about something), a construction that happily accommodates all manner of adjectival prefixes.
