Alternative forms[edit]


Borrowed from Latin -tiōne, ablative of -tiō as a learned form (or from -tiōnem, the accusative). The original inherited form of the suffix, -zón or -són, is today less common but found in words such as razón, sazón, tesón, quemazón, comezón, hinchazón, etc.



-ción f (plural -ciones)

  1. Used in forming a noun to represent the property corresponding to a verb; -tion.
    neutralizar (to neutralize) + ‎-ción → ‎neutralización (neutralization)

Usage notes[edit]

-ción may become -sión if preceded by "s", or -tión if preceded by "t". (e.g. propulsión, digestión)
