Etymology[edit]

From Middle Persian 𐭱𐭭 (-išn).

Suffix[edit]

ـش (-eš)

  1. A rough equivalent of -tion or -ment, appended to the present stem of a verb, resulting in a noun describing the action of that verb.

Usage notes[edit]

Present stems ending in a long vowel add ـیـ (-y-) before this suffix, for example the present stem of the verb پالودن (pâludan) being پالای (pâlây), the resulting noun is پالایش (pâlâyeš, refinement).
