I was thinking about the hedvórm. Should this really be in an inflection table? Swedish -het is analyzed as a noun forming suffix, and the words formed with it consequently as nouns. Thus, an example of derivation (avledning) rather than Inflection (böjning). So what's the story? Is it a matter of tradition? Is it extremely regular? Is it, like participles or Swedish "t-adverbs" (adjectives in neuter form used as adverbs), something that can be reasonably argued to be on the borderline between derivation and inflection?

Unlike Dutch - and probably Swedish - words ending on -hed are usually not included in dictionaries unless they have an "irregular meaning". The hedvórm can be created from every adjective, from good, vleivig, deep and even words like aetelik or advókkedrig (advokatorisk). HLI (comparable to the Swedish Språkrådet) also puts the hedvórm in the inflection tables. --Ooswesthoesbes 8 november 2009 kl. 10.18 (CET)
