Adjectives follow the nouns they modify, preceding the case clitic attached to the noun. This position is called the adjectival position of a given noun phrase. For example:
A fat man
The fat man is sleeping.
The adjectives kirat (tall and swift) and jini (tall and thin) belong to a group of polysemous adjectives that are commonly used in Tatari Faran. Native speakers regard certain combinations of attributes as prototypical of a certain ideal, and use a single word to describe them whenever they occur together. These prototypical adjectives are preferred over adjectives that refer to single attributes.
A tall and swift man
A tall and thin woman
The adjective kirat is cognate with kiran
man, and refers to a prototypical young man who's tall and swift.
An adjective may be intensified by reduplication. For example:
A large volcano.
A very large volcano.
The reduplicated stem is prefixed to the base adjective, and has any long vowels or glides in its last syllable reduced to a corresponding short vowel, and the final consonant, if present, is dropped:
esei → ese-esei
long; very long
tsat → tsa-tsat
fast; very fast
airis → airi-airis
young; very young
tihai → tiha-tihai
old; very old
The reduplicated stem is unstressed; the accent remains on the base adjective:
