I had a list of 50 words to change the parts of speech of. I got most of them but I can't seem to find these anywhere.
Conjure - change to a noun and adj.
pernicious - change to a noun and verb
diffident - change to a noun and verb
lament - change to an adj.
rancor - change to a verb and adj.
enmity - change to a verb and adj.
discourse - change to a verb and adj.
perjury - change to a verb and adj.
Could someone help me?

You could make it a noun by adding the ending -ness.
You can also go to http://www.onelook.com and enter the main part of each word and an asterisk (wild card!) -- and see what comes up.
Let us know what you find.
And remember that there are some pretty standard adjective and noun endings:
Let us know what else you come up with.
