  1. Deverbal noun

    Deverbal nouns are nouns which are derived from verbs or verb phrases, but which behave grammatically purely as nouns, not as verbs. They are distinct from verbal noun types such as gerunds and infinitives, which behave like verbs within their phrase. The formation of deverbal nouns is one of the types of nominalization. Examples of deverbal nouns in English include organization, the noun construct, and discovery. The -ing form of any verb can serve as a deverbal noun, although the same word form can also be used verbally as a gerund or participle.
