So, moving to adjectives now. Here my main concern is about the various forms. First, the "classic" distinction between definite and indefinite forms. I have read from various sources that this distinction is not so prominent anymore, or almost nonexistent (so much that R. Alexander uses the term short forms and long forms). Does this hold equally in all the BCS republics? This means that if I say Kupio sam nov kaput or Kupio sam novi kaput is virtually the same everywhere? In general, can you give me examples (general or specific) when it's more preferable to use the short form than the long form? Thank you.
