Variant forms

Usage notes

The suffix takes different variant forms according to the final consonant or vowel of the root it is added to. The use of this suffix is very productive in Dutch and has led to the creation of quite a few lexicalized forms, i.e. the diminutive has acquired a meaning of its own. See e.g. nl:Categorie:Zelfstandig verkleinwoord.
