Participles are verbs that are commonly used like nouns. For this reason, they are called nominalisations. For some participles, the original verb may not even exist anymore; in this case, they exist in the lexicon only as nouns.

In the dictionary, nominalisations are marked using the following abbreviations:

  • nap: noun animate participle
  • nip: noun inanimate participle
