    Re: About some sujets adjetives and nouns

    "...ness" changes an adjective to to a noun. It is similar to the ending "...idad" in Spanish. Happy = feliz, happiness = felicidad

    "...less" added to a noun means "without" (sin) in Spanish.

    homeless = without a home
    flawless = without a flaw
