Description This article deals with morphologic aspects of denominal adjectives specifically with those coming from proper nouns. The first part is an outline of the morphologic aspects of the two categories used to classify adjectives i.e. relational and qualifying. Here we present that in some instances relational adjectives can be perceived as qualifying. Based on a corpus of over 300 adjectives derived from proper nouns, all of them entries in the DRAE, we study its morphologic properties and the possibility of their interpretation as relational or qualifying.
