What is the verb form of adhesive?

'Adhere' is the verb form of the adjective/noun 'adhesive.' To adhere to stay attached; stick fast; cleave; cling (usually followed by to). Example: The mud adhered to his shoes.

You can change nouns and adjectives into verbs by adding the suffixes -ate, -ise, -en and -ify.

Here are some examples:

author becomes authorise

assassin becomes assassinate

dark becomes darken

class becomes classify

Remember: The usual spelling rules apply for words ending in -'y' (change to 'i' before adding the ending), words ending in 'e' (remove the 'e' before adding the ending) and words ending with a short vowel sound (double the consonant before adding the ending).

The process of converting a verb to a noun, on the other hand, is a very specific process called nominalization. There's no single rule for converting a verb to a noun, and some verbs can't easily be converted. In many cases, however, simply altering the suffix can convert the verb to a noun.
