    I don't know where to start

    Verb: to find .... Noun: findings

    Someone asked me if all verbs can be changed to a noun by adding the letter s.

    I know there are more ways to change a verb to a noun than by simply adding s but can all verbs be changed to a noun?

    Can anyone please help me to give a very basic explanation of verbal nouns just some rules to follow.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: I don't know where to start

    I donīt believe there is a rule...

    Taste (verb) --> Taste (noun) no change made to word
    Change (verb) --> Change (noun) no change made to word
    Inform (verb) --> Information (noun) add -ation
    Tell (verb) --> Tale (noun) wha-? how?

    Every verb that I think of has a noun...still thinking...
