    The suffix -tās is added to an adjective (or sometimes a noun) to form an abstract third declension feminine noun indicating a state or condition.

    Examples:
    potis (able) + ‎-tas → ‎potestās (ability)
    difficilis (difficult, troublesome) + ‎-tas → ‎difficultās (difficulty, trouble)
    līber (free) + ‎-tas → ‎lībertās (liberty, freedom)
    aevum (infinite time) + ‎-tas → ‎aetās (lifetime)

    It has two allomorphs:

    -itās
    viduus + ‎-tas → ‎viduitās (widowhood)
    magnanimus + ‎-tas → ‎magnanimitās (magnanimity)
    alacer + ‎-tas → ‎alacritās (cheerfulness)
    -etās
    proprius + ‎-tas → ‎proprietās (quality, property)
    medius + ‎-tas → ‎medietās (midpoint)
    satis + ‎-tas → ‎satietās (sufficiency)
