In a few cases, the suffix -ing can derive nouns on the basis of other nouns. Examples are huzinghousing (from hûshouse), tidingmessage (from tiidtime) or lûdingsound (from lûdsound). Some derivations have an allomorph in -inge, as for example in huzingehousing. The suffix seems to have a collectivizing effect.
