Words that should exist in english…


I routinely will verbify nouns or nounify verbs to create words that seem like they should exist.  The problem being that I think about the world more like an architect so everything should be structural in nature – american english is most definitely not this!  So I’m creating a list of words that I personally believe should exist to increase their presence on the internet until Google adds them to their dictionary.


Definition: Convert a word in it’s present form into a verb.

Past Tense: verbification.

Example: When you verbify “concrete” (solid) you get “concretize” (to make solid).
