Church Slavonic Adjectives
Adjectives are words that describe nouns. In Church Slavonic, adjectives have two forms, a short form and a long form. The short-form adjectives decline like nouns. The long-form adjectives decline like pronouns.
Adjectives sometimes appear without a noun and act as a noun themselves. For example, <svjat/yj> often is used as a noun with mean "holy one."
Neuter adjectives used as nouns sometimes have special meanings. Neuter plural adjectives can act as collective nouns. Neuter singular adjectives can act as abstract nouns. For example, the neuter singular adjective <nepor/ochnoe> without a referent means "innocence" or "blamelessness".
