    I mean the short form of dobryj if that exists. In Bulgarian it's y, dobYr, in Serbo-Croatian a, dobAr.

    Yes we have the short form and it is dobr . добрый-  добр and dobra (добра) for female.

    That's probably because Common Slavic had two ways of forming adjectives, short (dobrъ, dobra, dobro) and long, formed with a pronoun jъ, ja, je (the forms would be dobrъjъ, dobraja, dobroje, I suppose), originally two words (it's similar to the post-positioned article).

    I thought dobri was preferred over dobar.

    O! That's the term I was searching for. Thanks.

    It technical exissts in Serbian (dobar čovjek and dobri čovjek, but it is mostly falle out of use).

    Which one descends from dobrъ, and which from dobrъjъ?
