    Default Can somebody help me with the derivatives of these words?

    I need to know all the derivatives from these words and the difference in meaning, sometimes they can seem similar or confusing ..
    1- Permit
    2- Prohibit
    3- Conceive
    4-Seclude
    5- Offend

    Also can derivatives be adjectives or verbs as well, or are they only nouns?

    A good dictionary will help you. Scroll down here.

    For the verbs in your list, at least one of which can function as a noun, there are associated nouns, adjectives and adverbs.
