I am not a native English speaker. I am working on a computer program whose purpose is to recognize whether an English word is a "nominalizations" or not.
I have consulted Wikipedia and other resources. Is the following method, to identify if a word is a nominalization, correct?
- See if the word is a noun. If it is a noun, check if it ends with "ment", "ation", "ing" or "ance". If it ends with any of these, then it's a nominalization otherwise it is not.
Do you think that approach is correct? If not, can you kindly point out how should I go about it? Thanks in advance.
