Whilst practising my skills, I am often asked to give a translation for "They are big". The answer necessarily seems to be "Rōvra issi" and no other plural nominative form of "rōva" is accepted. I ask why? Am I wrong in believing that "rōvi issi", "rōvyz issi" and "rōva issi" are also correct translations? How am I supposed to know that the Aquatic Class is expected?

Yeah, that's no good. I'll go find that question and accept other plural forms. Thanks for letting me know!

If it's like Latin then the adjective must agree in case, number and gender. Which Valyrian is at least somewhat based on Latin in grammar.
