nominalize
American English: /ˈnɑmənəˌlaɪz/
British English: /ˈnɒmɪn(ə)lʌɪz/

Translation of nominalize in Spanish:

transitive verb

  • Example sentences
    • Some items in the last set might be plural nominalized obsoletes rather than verbs, but the ones I checked were third-person singular verbs.
    • The second construes the process as a thing - the verb has been nominalized by means of the ing suffix - consequently, the temporal aspect of the process has been backgrounded.
    • Perhaps by analogy with the compounds ‘schoolmate,’ ‘messmate,’ ‘playmate’, Edmund is treating the nominalised adjective as a compound noun.
