buorre

Northern SamiEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Samic *puorē. Cognate with Finnish paras, parempi.

AdjectiveEdit

buorre

  1. good

Usage notesEdit

The adjective buorre does not have a separate attributive form. Instead, it declines in the same case and number as the noun it modifies. There are two exceptions to this:

  • With a noun in the illative or locative singular, the accusative/genitive form buori is used.
  • With a noun in the illative or comitative plural, the accusative/genitive form buriid can be optionally used, alongside the regular forms buriide and buriiguin.

The nominative singular form is slightly irregular as well, ending in -e rather than -i.
