Declension of adjectives in Russian

Overview of the article published on the SLO website:

Russian adjectives  change their form to agree with the gender, number or case of nouns they modify. In singular, the endings of Russian long-form adjectives express grammatical gender, number and case. In plural, they express only number and case.

There are three declension types of Russian adjectives:

  1. Declension of qualitative and relational adjectives
  2. Declension of possessive adjectives with stem in -ий
  3. Declension of possessive adjectives ending in -ин(-ын), -ов(-ев)

The article on the website covers peculiarities of all these declension types.
