Comment:
Afrikaans attributive adjectives may, but do not have to inflect. Whether there is inflection depends upon the adjective. In some cases, there are choices, in which case the inflected form tends to express a figurative and/or affective meaning - 'n skoon venster ('a clean window') vs. skone angs ('pure anxiety') (Ponelis 1993: 364–376).
