    Достойный, достоин, достойна...

    Making exercises on short forms of adjectives I find достойный; достоин, достойна.... Surely some rule makes necessary this и in masc. and not a й like one could wait. And it would be of application in other cases. Please, which is it? Since in no book I see a reference to it.

    Why do you expect the Й there? The E is what usually there.
    Холодный - холоден холодна холодно
    Свободный - свободен свободна свободно
    Красный - красен красна красно
    --------------------------
    I underlined stresses there.

    And think of достоин as of an exception.
    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

    Re: достойный; достоин, достойна, ...

    Well, I see that the additional vowel is inserted just in the genre that needs it. I thought that once put in the masc. it should be kept in every genre. So in южный I see: южен, южнa: южно, южны. And here it should be: достой-ен, достойна, -о, -ы. Here putting together й-е finally it sould be достоен, bah, little irregularity. Thank you.

    All of them are wrong. There are no such words.

    достоин

    Examples:

    Он достоин этой награды.

    But:

    Он удостоен этой награды.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    1) As for южный. I was just making an exercise with the first word that I thought. I see that it has no short form. But if it has....
    2) As for достоин. I said that достоeн should be its regular form, being достоин a little irregularity. However always that I mention the word "irregularity" in conection with Russian grammar I say that are the regularities that one must find
    Thank you.

    And you couldn't have heard mine at all cause of it's nonexistence. I can only read and write in English a little, I almost hadn't an opportunity to speak it ever. Good day to you!
