Uzbek grammar lessons - Adjectives 2

Assalomu alaykum,

Like in English language we have also comparative adjectives in Uzbek language.
Comparative adjectivesSifat darajalari.

In Uzbek we have following similar types:

⑴ oddiy daraja - normal form or regular adjectives
⑵ orttirma daraja - superlative form of adjectives 
⑶ qiyosiy daraja - comparative adjectives 

⑴ This type of adjective does not have any suffixes and known to be core (base) of adjectives. 

Examples: yashil (green), yumshoq (soft), sariq (yellow), yengil (light [weight]), qattiq (hard), qisqa (short).

⑵  This type describe very high or low quantity of the objects or subjects. And usually made by adding following words front of the adjectives: juda (very), juda ham (greatly), g'oyat (extremely), g'oyatda, nihoyatda, eng, hammadan. (similar exaggerate words)

Examples: juda og'ir (very heavy), juda ham qattiq (greatly hard), g'oyat go'zal (extremely beautiful), g'oyatda bema'ni (truly nonsense), nihoyatda uzoq (very far), eng kuchli (greatly strong). 

⑶ This type of adjectives created by adding "-roq" to the base of adjectives and describe comparative quantity of the objects or subjects. 

Examples: qoraroq (blacker), uzunroq (longer), qattiqroq (harder), aqlliroq (smarter), torroq (narrower).

Besides above types there are another 2 form of adjectives in Uzbek. Namely,  Weaken (Ozaytirma) and Strengthen (Kuchaytirma) adjectives (sifatlar). 

1. Weaken adjectives describe less or light marks of the objects and subjects.

Examples: oq (white) - oqish (whitish), qora (black) - qoramtir (blackish), sariq (yellow) - sarg'ish (yellowish), qizil (red) - qizg'ish (reddish), yashil (green) - och yashil (greenish or light green). 

2. Strengthen adjectives vice versa, increase or strengthen the mark.

Examples: qora - qop-qora (very dark black), tim qora (strong black); oq - oppoq (very white or strong white), ko'k (blue) - ko'm-ko'k (strong/dark blue), tekis (smooth) - tep-tekis (very flat), yumaloq (round) - yum-yumaloq (very/even round), katta (big) - kap-katta (big enough), yolg'on (lie) - g'irt yolg'on (completely lie), ho'l (wet) - jiqqa ho'l (very wet), sariq (yellow) - sap-sariq (yellowish).
