The prefix ûnt- derives verbs on the basis of adjectives, although this process is not very productive. The derived verbs denote that the property expressed by the adjective has been taken away. Examples are eigen own > ûnteigenje to dispossess and tsjerklik ecclesiastical > ûnttsjerklikje to secularize.


The prefix ûnt- may also take nouns, and, most frequently, verbs. As the derivations on the basis of these categories have much in common, a more extensive treatment of this prefix can be found in ûnt- with verb as base topic, and more in particular in the section on nouns and adjectives as base.
