Noun

If you include an article or determiner plus a word that ends with:
(AL|ANCE|ATION|TION|SION|URE|MENT|AGE|ING|ERY|NESS|ITY|ISM|
TH|Y|ERY|TY|ANT|ENT|EE|IST|AR|ER|OR|ster|ARIAN|EE|ER|EER|IST|ETTE|
SIE|SY|IE|Y|LET|LING|KIN|DOM|SHIP|HOOD) you probably have a noun phrase.

*er though could be comparative adjective!

Adjective

(AL|ARY|FUL|IC|ICAL|ISH|LESS|LIKE|LY|OUS|Y|ABLE|IBLE|ANT|ENT|IVE|ING|ED|EN|esque|ious|ous)

VERB

(ate|en|ify|fy|ize|ise)

ADVERB

-ly

*the problem with including -y is that it clashes with -ly

 


-AL noun or adjective
