Usage notesEdit

  • The adjective is usually treated as invariable in the formal standard language, thus neither declined forms nor comparation forms are used.
  • In less formal style and in the vernacular, lila has normal inflected forms. An -n- is then infixed before (vocalic) endings. Compare the same in rosa.
