How to nominalize adjectives in Latin? In English, adjectives can be nominalized with a slight different in meaning: "the sick man", "the sick". In German, it's possible to nominalize the present participle: "die neue Kollegin", "die Neue".
But how is it with Latin? And can the participles (like portans, portatus...) be nominalized (like the German: "tragend" > "der Tragende")?
