Very little makes my heart smile and, likely, an English teacher’s heart sink, than the act of making a noun into a verb. It’s so simple and even more rewarding! You just add an -ing, -ifying, -ed or an -ize to the end of your favorite nouns.
Speaking of acronymizing, I also really like to pronounce acronyms as if they were words. DVD is duh-vuh-duh. SUV is naturally suhv. FYI is fyeeee. ATM ends up sounding like atom and GPS is ji-pus. Everyone loves to say LOL so I’m not all that unique in this, really.
Speaking is more fun this way.
Funny enough, although I am 100% in favor of verifying nouns, I am 150% against acronymizing acronyms (a.k.a. a macronym). For example, AIM for AOL Instant Messenger. Companies are notorious for this. I see it used all the time for equipment or project names and it makes my eye brows twitch.
Somewhat related is the phenomenon of the backronym which I did not even realize had a title until today.
