    suffix

    Hello dear teachers and other clever people,
    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this:

    Commune= community - according to Cambridge Dictionary they are both nouns. Do we make other nouns from nouns?
    Thank you in advance

    A commune is not the same as a community. All communes are communities, but not all communities are communes.
