Wordy Wednesday: All About Slims

I don’t know about you, but something is going around in our area. Both Artis and I were sick and miserable for days and the crud is lingering on. At least it’s not keeping us up at night or keeping me from working!

So, let’s have some fun with being sick and do some words based on slims!

  • slims : adj. sick decline me»

    slima : adj. sick decline me»

    This is an adjective, which means it modifies nouns. Because of this, it can take either gender and has gender-appropriate endings. Yes, I still need to write about both adverbs and adjectives.

  • slimot : to be sick, to ail conjugate me»

    Unlike sāpēt, slimot is just a normal verb, so don’t get the two mixed up. Sāpēt needs a dative construction, such as man sāp galva, slimot doesn’t.

  • slimība : disease decline me»

    You could think of this as a “thing that makes one sick”. Pretty neat, huh?

  • slimnieks : (male) patient decline me»

    slimniece : (female) patient decline me»

    -nieks is the suffix for person, so a slimnieks is a sick-person or patient!

  • slimīgs : adj. sickly decline me»

    slimīga : adj. sickly decline me»

    Another adjective. Notice that both sets of adjectives here conform to the 1st and 4th declensions, as is typical for adjectives. The declension of the noun is irrelevant, only the gender, number and case. The adjective must match all three.

If you are wondering why I left out slimnīca, it’s because I featured it on March 2nd’s Wordy Wednesday.
