> But there is something legitimately weird about 同じ (onaji). It's used without a na or a proper i-ending. Does anyone know if there are any other adjectives (or whatever it is) of the same kind and function? I think that someone mentioned it a couple months ago, but didn't give a full explanation of what is meant...

"Re: adjectival nouns vs. descriptive verbs" by hiro is the message I was thinking of, but I'm still not sure what an "attributive word" is... Did onajiru used to be a verb or something?
