Re: More Verbification
I am increasingly hearing "effort" being used as a verb, as in "I am
efforting to contact him". IMO, I find "efforting" to be trying.
"First they came for the verbs, and I said nothing because verbing weirds language. Then they arrival for the nouns, and I speech nothing because I no verbs."
(After Bill Watterson's Calvin, in Calvin and Hobbes: "Verbing weirds language.")
