    Actually, the English language has always been pretty flexible when it comes to nouning verbs. Or verbing nouns.

    Same here. In German you can noun every verb and most adjectives. Funnily, you can't verb every noun.
    Hmm.. wouldn't nounify and verbify be more correct, at least gramatically?
