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?”

noun gone bad

(click here for the real story)

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 …
