The verbalisation of a noun where an an activity is done.

In this case, "market" is the place/noun and that the activity of grocery shopping is done at the market. Market is then verbalised by adding "-ing" = "Marketing"

Simply means : Grocery shopping, traditionally done at the market, nowadays supermarket is also acceptable as long as it is to do with shopping for grocery, not just picking up a carton of milk.

Commonly used in Singapore and Malaysia.

Nothing to do with the meaning of a profession to advertise a product or service.

Friend1 : Huh?
Friend2 : She's gone to the market to do buy some grocery for the week.

Origin unknown. Purpose unknown. States the obvious, accepts all credit, rejects all blame.

An increasingly common plague found in the work place which causes annoyance and despair in other co-workers. Thrives on board-meetings, dependent on company mobile phones, Outlook, and a considerable yearly budget with no questions asked on how its gets pissed up the wall on nothing. Able to speak but prefers to do any communication through email which is the sole purpose of computers.

Uses any opportunity to voice their opinions and set policy on matters which are none of their concern and to which they have knowledge of. Usually the bane of any Web-Developers existence.

Able to plan projects perfectly without any of the minor concerns such as development or implementation.

Curiously, all Marketing plague-people start as a Manager. There is no lower position available although there is never actually anyone to manage.
see above for example. Be wary of any person who says they are "Marketing". Lose all hope when dealing with a "Marketing Consultant".
