This noun/verb thing sure looks like it could cause translation
problems, as well. Went to a class on translation last week -- met
another lister there, no less! It seems like using words in a standard
fashion really makes the translation job easier -- my bet is
non-standard use of words in the wrong part of speech would if nothing
else, slow down a translator substantially.
