This is just going to be more words.


Here are some descriptive words.

ii or yoi (dv) good (when conjugated "yoi" is always used, ex. yokunai -> not good)

atarashii (dv) new

hayai (dv) early

hoshii (dn) wanted, desired

hayai (dv) fast

osoi (dv) late, slow

takai (dv) tall, high, expensive

hikui (dv) short

totoi (dn) precious, sacred

gumai (dn or dv) stupid, dumb

atsui (dn) hot

hadasumi (dn) chilly, unplesantly cold

itai (dv) painful

oishii (dv) tasty

An important thing to remember about descriptive words is that there is usually a word that means the same thing just in one word.

For example water is usually said as a different word depending on what kind of water it is. Here are some;

hitoshizuku a drop of water

net-tou boiling water

tansansui carbonated water

jousui clean water

hiyamizu drinking water

reisui cold water

hiya cold water or sake

osui sewage water

yu hot water

kaisui ocean water

plus many more and I'm sure I don't know them all.
