Calvin: “I like to verb words.”

Hobbes: “What?”

Calvin: “I take nouns and adjectives and use them as verbs. Remember when `access’ was a thing? Now it’s something you do . It got verbed.”

Calvin: “Verbing weirds language.”

Hobbes: “Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding.”

Calvin & Hobbes, by Bill Watterson
