Many Latin verbs are denominal. For example, the first declension verb coronare (English: to crown) is derived from corona (English: a crown), and the fourth declension verbs mollire (English: to soften) and servire (English: to serve) are derived from mollis (English: soft) and servus (English: a slave) respectively.
