Today, Any Word can be a Verb

Most individuals, I suspect, don’t think much about the use of ordinary language; of cliches, colloquialisms, neologisms, buzzwords (which is a newer word itself), and the like. But even more so, we tend not to think about verbs which were once nouns; words which previously did not convey action whatsoever, but now have multiple parts of speech depending on their usage. Well, now you can think about it, because Anthony Gardner has written an informative, fascinating article titled, “You’ve been verbed.”
