American English has a fairly long tradition of nounifying verbs and
verbifying nouns. Or should I say "nounizing" and "verbizing" to
double the annoyance points?

I'dd add to this any noun to which -ize has been added to turn it into a
verb. Sometimes it is an actual word, but quite often it isn't. You just
can't go around making up words, it's just wrong!
