Post a New Question

Posted by on Monday, September 24, 2007 at 10:15pm.

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?

    I looked up "pernicious" at http://www.answers.com, and found only the adjective form (which is obvious from the -ous on the end of it).

    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.

    conjur*
    pernic*
    diffid*
    lamen*
    ranc*
    enmit*
    discours*
    perjur*

    Let us know what you find.

    And remember that there are some pretty standard adjective and noun endings:

    -ous (adj.)
    -ness (n.)
    -tion (n.)
    etc.

    Let us know what else you come up with.

    =)
