This is a discussion about 施設

Suru verb?

what would this word mean as a suru verb...to institutionalise? my japanese friends says you can't suru verb it

Certain words could historically have する appended to them, so it's possible to find examples in old literature and whatnot. Here's a monolingual dictionary that lists it as a する verb.


But I would believe your friends if they say you can't use it that way today. Jisho has no good way to display that a する verb status is archaic.

Agreed on the point that it isn't used with suru in modern parlance. Just going by the dictionary entry, it sounds like 施設する would mean "to construct a building for a certain purpose".
