Shortly after reading Nancy Allison's Wordsmithy column in the
STC journal on vouns last summer, I ran across this sentence in
a management report. It's not exactly nonsense just self-important.
(A voun is a verb that is used as a noun.)

"The pool was extremely small and it may be difficult to make
a hire without an additional recruit."
