Word Family "act"

Wörter aus den selben Wortfamilien sind einfach zu behalten oder zu erschließen, da sie ja alle einen gemeinsamen Wortstamm haben.

Gerade im Englischen kann man aus Adjektiven wie "empty" und Nomen wie "bottle" Verben wie "to empty" (etw. ausleeren) und "to bottle" (etw. abfüllen) bilden.

Interessanter wird es, wennn man Verben mit Endungen wie "-y, "-ive" und "-ual" in Adjective, mit "-ion", "-or" oder "-ivist" in Nomen umwandeln kann.
