A NY Times Blog by Helen Sword, of “Stylish Academic Writing” Fame…

Just found this piece on the nytimes blog by Helen Sword: Mutant Verbs

In the post, Sword talks about the strange phenomenon of mutating nouns into verbs (i.e. Google something, Facebook something, brown the meat, parrot the professor, etc.)

It’s a pretty interesting piece, check it out if you have some time!

Can anyone think of other good examples of “verbifying”?
