Zombie Nouns and Word Nerds (Lizzie)

Are you a word nerd? If you are, what are your favorite jokes, pet peeves, mistakes, learning tools, and so on?

One of my favorite word-nerd things is this video from Ted-Ed and Helen Sword on buried verbs, also known as nominalizations. Enjoy!

P.S. For more information on nominalizations, check out this article from OWL (Purdue's Online Writing Lab) .
