die Freiheit

freedom

The word is a nominalisation of the adjective ***FREI*** with the suffix ***-HEIT***. In Old High German two forms existed in parallel: ***frituom*** and ***friheit***, and in Middle High German ***- vrîtuom*** und ***vrîheit.*** In New High German we only have ***Freiheit***. *(Source: Wiktionary)* by technoparty
