I have a 1976 edition of the OED on my shelf.

I don't think that there is a proper spelling for that [marketing department buzz] word. It's a word that weaseled its way into the American lexicon like "moisturize", or "melty".

Helping the world with its real issues...thanks. Also, when using the word “add”, remember “ad” means advertisement and “ad” means to constitute an addition. Spread the word.

'Big' words – like the ones you are using, are also a 'tool of the oppressor, used for put-downs and propaganda of superiority.' The meanings of words, and the understanding of those words – are tools of the oppressed, which is *precisely* why the dictionary is NOT – nor should ever be allowed, to even be SUGGESTED as – some sort of quirky, quaint, obsolete thing of old – in my opinion.

Sure, big words can be used by oppressors. Oppressors will use anything they know how to use.

But I think my point stands. I'll put it in small words--telling people how to talk is a jerk move. Unless they're your child, or they asked for a critique.

If the definition in the dictionary does not line up with common usage, that definition is wrong--or perhaps obsolete.

A lot of techy stuff uses nouns as verbs. As we used to say when writing technical documentation:

"there is no noun that we cannot verb"
Lol, okay - you have me curious now. Not that I doubt you, but can you quote (or point to) any examples of actual technical documentation with 'verbified' nouns?
