"Irritating nouns-as-verbs"

Henry Hitchings has a piece in the NYT this morning called "Those Irritating Nouns-as-Verbs", here. It's about stuff of the type "do you have a solve for this problem" and "let's all focus on the build" (his examples). I was all set for a rant about peevology and how nouning is just as fun as verbing, but it's much less peevologically driven than I first assumed.

Still, the real value in the piece, I'd say, is Grant Snider's graphic, starting with the title.
