- 'Adj-s are inflected to agree in gender or classifier and number with the noun they modify (even if that noun is not overt)' (p.126). 'When an adjective modifies a noun, both the noun and the adjective take classifiers or gender markers. Usually, the clfs or gender markers on the adj and the noun are identical [...]. But sometimes they differ' (Morse & Maxwell 1999:123). Morse & Maxwell (1999:113) mention that when a multiword NP is marked by -RE (marking both direct and indirect objects),'the last word of the NP is always marked with -RE; preceding words in the phrase may or may not be so marked'.
