Adjectives as Verbs

Sorry if you get two copies... I didn't seem to come through before.

If anyone has any I'd really like examples from as many different
languages as possible which have verbs fulfilling the role of adjectives
on how it works, how they do comparitives/superlatives, how they make
the verb relative (are there any which use a relative pronoun? Or do
they all inflect the verb to mark it as relative? etc). Thanks in Advance,

Chris. :)

(My current project is a little strange... after the discussion about
that new auxlang a little while ago I decided to make my own toy auxlang
and do it properly, instead of making a euroclone, just for fun. I
wasn't planning on trying to persuade anyone to actually use it... I've
kindof drifted though, and its become more of a con/artlang, with things
that are probably not a good idea in an auxlang, like a switch system (I
love those!). I'm asking about adjectives as verbs because I decided not
to have a separate class of adjectives...)
