During the past few years, I've likewise noticed a trend to make nouns out of verbs. "The submit was successful." "He participated in the install." What the heck ever happened to "submission" and "installation"?
I know that English is a living language, and we should not be too adverse to welcoming new words and new trends into the language. However, I'm not convinced that these aberrations in the English language are intended to make the language more interesting or more useful. Instead, I think they are just a matter of sloppiness.
Regardless of one's reason for doing so, transforming verbs into nouns and nouns into verbs just grates on my nerves.
