Pronunciation[edit]

Suffix[edit]

-tūra f (genitive -tūrae); first declension

  1. -ure, -ing; used to form a noun relating to some action.

Usage notes[edit]

The suffix -tūra is added to the supine form of a verb to create a first-declension noun naming the verb's action or the result of that action.

Examples:
pictūra (painting, picture), from pictum, supine of pingō (I paint)
scrīptūra (a writing, act of writing), from scrīptum, supine of scrībō (I write)

The suffix -tūra resembles the feminine form of (and may be related to) the future active participle ending -tūrus, which describes impending or imminent action (e.g. pictūrus "about to paint"; scrīptūrus "on the point of writing").

Declension[edit]

First-declension noun.

Genitive -tūrae -tūrārum
