In English, we generally do not modify the word when we change the class of a word from a verb into a noun:

  • to drive --> a drive
  • to fly --> a fly
  • to desire --> a desire

In other changes of class, we can add endigns such as -ly to make adverbs, -ness to make nouns, etc. Of course, in Hungarian, there is ALWAYS an ending involved to change the class of a verb :)

From the navigation menu to the left of this text you will see a list of the ways in which words may be changed from one class to another, such as from a noun to a verb. Select a page to see the lesson.
