Verb to noun: Conversion of foreign past participles

This type of verb-to-noun conversion is related to verbs ending in ieren that are of Latin origin. The nouns are derived from Latin perfect stems. Most of these nouns existed already in Latin. This type of wordformation is not or hardly productive in German.

The nouns are masculine or neuter. They belong to the inflection class es/e:

  Latin participle/noun
extrahieren » Extrakt    extractum
produzieren » Produkt productum
präfixieren » Präfix praefixum
suffigieren » Suffix suffixum
All derivations of this class

Cf. Conversion verb to adjective, Foreign past participle.
