verbing in action:
1. "Hey insert name here
, you've been gettin' pretty friendly with insert name here

2. "Do you mind scooting over a bit?" "Sure, chairing is caring!"
The act of turning a noun into a verb

Jerk! Stop verbing!
1. Taking a word that is not a verb and turning it into a verb by adding -ing to the end.
Comes from the latin word "verb" meaning "an action" and the root "-ing" meaning "making the word infront of it a verb."
1) I decided that the word verb needed to under go a verbing to create the word verbing so I could use it to describe the process that the word verb just under went.
2) I felt sorry for the word "strong" since it was but a mere adjective so I decided to make it a verb but making it undergo the process of verbing thus making it the verb "stronging."
The grammatical choice of taking a word that is usually a noun and using it a verb.
These are all examples of verbing:
"That drag queen womans better than I do."
"I potatoed on the couch all day today"
"I'm so tired I can't even brain right now"
to make a noun into a verb
