There are two predicative comparative constructions in Northern Mansi. In the first construction (1-2), the standard of comparison takes the ablative case and the comparee is in the nominative (Kálmán 1976). The adjective does not take a comparative suffix, thus the word order is comparative standard + adjective.
If the difference between the compared entities is not substantial (Rombandeeva 1973: 84), another construction is used where the adjective takes the -nuwe ending, while the case distribution is the same: ablative + nominative (3) (Riese 2001: 29). The word order in this construction is standard + adjective + comparative marker. The appearance of the comparee is optional after the -nuwe suffix (4).
