Common nouns, unusual verbs: "Breakfast, something" etc #1 (permalink) Thu Dec 28, 2006 20:41 pm   Common nouns, unusual verbs: "Breakfast, something" etc
 

Hi

I am preparing a list of words which are very common nouns but uncommon/ unusual verbs. For example,

1-Something
2- Breakfast
etc.

Could you please provide me with some words like that??

Hi Tom,

You'll have to be a little more explicit!

OK and thanks, Alan.

I saw the followings words used as verbs in three different places. All by authentic writers!.

1- She likes to breakfast (have breakfast) in expensive hotels.
2- Someone has scissored (cut with scissors)this photograph.
3- Don't you dare something (treat me as mere something) me!

Having seen that I decided to make a little list of such words for myself. Could you please help me here also?

Yours

Tom

Hi Tom,

A huge undertaking but I would recommend you browse this site:

http://www.eflworksheets.com/grammar/grammarsample.htm

Go to the nouns and verbs section and you should find a wealth of information to browse through and you will also find an answer key.
