The Word ‘Verb’ Is A Noun

词语“动词”是个名词

The most common definition of a noun is a person, place, or thing. The “thing” part of this definition can mean a concept, an idea, or even a word, like the word “verb”. Sometimes nouns are turned into verbs through a process called “verbing” or “verbification”. Take the word “party” for example. It wasn’t that long ago when this word was mainly used as a noun.These days, to party is one of the most popular verbs out there! Nouns aren’t the only word forms that you can verbify. Adjectives can also be turned into verbs. Have you ever heard the adjective “weird” being used as a verb? To “weird someone out” means to make someone feel uncomfortable. Newly coined verbs often happen with popular technology or brands. For example, “google” is one of the most popular verbs around.

名词最常见的定义是人、地点或事物。其中事物这部分可以是一个概念,一个想法,甚至是一个单词,比如动词这个词。有时名词通过一个动词化的过程变成动词。以聚会这个词为例。不久以前,这个词主要用作名词。现在,去聚会是最流行的动词之一了!名词并不是唯一动词化的单词形式。形容词也可以变成动词。你有没有听过形容词“奇怪的”被用作动词,意思是让某人感到不舒服。新创造的动词经常出现在流行的技术或品牌中。例如,谷歌是目前最流行的动词之一。
