Thanks. We have had great response to our original post: Nouns gone bad … the phenomenon of using nouns as verbs, and the growing prevalence of this practice.
Today, we saw a Web item that prompted us to sequel the original:
“Do you sushi?”
What a great example. Have you ever used the word sushi as a verb?
Here are more culprits from our readers and our research:
DRC is … “Jonesing for something to drink.”
CDS heard a sportscaster say … “He defensed that play perfectly.”
CG is going to … “TiVo (or DVR) her favorite TV shows.”
Speaking of favorites, have you ever favorited a Web site or a tweet?
CG heard someone say (and we heard this one on the TV show Will & Grace) … “lotion up their skin.”
SF reminded us that … “Of course there’s ‘friended‘ on Facebook/MySpace.”
Recently, we read an article in which … “The shoplifter was reprieved at the last minute.”
What about this … “are you gaming today?”
Oh, yes, another from the computer age … “let’s pdf that document.”
Got more? Please let us hear from you …
