-ste
quickinfo

The suffix -ste is an allomorph of -st, which primarily derives action nouns from verbs. A phonological condition is that the stem should end in a nasal consonant. An example is langstedesire, which exists next to langst. Not all derivations with -st have a variant with -ste, however. If so, the formations with -ste mainly belong to an elevated style.
