What is exactly the difference between nouning an adjective different ways? Some only have one form, but others have both. Examples:
- hilarious: hilarity vs. hilariousness
- virtuous: virtuosity vs. virtuousness
- clandestine: clandestinity vs. clandestineness
As an aside, what causes some to only have one form, like cheap --> cheapness, and what causes others to have two? And some have none, it seems. For example, accomplished --> * accomplishedness.
