Rules[edit | edit source]
Adjectives in Uzbek modify nouns.
When adjective comes after the noun then it becomes a predicate.
Adjectives are used as word root, meaning that they can serve as nuclei for further morphological construction by adding suffixes.
Adjectives in Uzbek do not carry the plural suffix.
- yangi kitob – new book
- yangi kitoblar – new books
- bu kitob yangi – this book is new
yangi+lik - news
