So how can "vacant" become "vacancy" anyway?

"-Ancy" is a suffix that can be added to a base (in this case an adjective) to make it a new noun. This can turn a base from meaning "_____" to meaning "in the state of being ______" or "the result of being ________." We added "-ancy" to "vacant" to form "vacancy." A definition of "vacant" is "not lived in." A definition of "vacancy" is "the state of not being lived in."
The sign that stated that the hotel had vacancy loomed over the lonely, unoccupied room.
