Since when has swivel been a noun?

Or are you trying to noun it?

So presumably, if you are into "nouning" things, you are a pronoun?

Was it just me or did Michael Johnson talk about Usain Bolt "combinating" the 100m and 200?

Next thing you know "bolting" will be used to mean running off really fast.

He is quite good at hundreding and two hundreding - but I reckon he sort of marathoned the last bit of the hundred.

If you eye what I'm wording.

Enough desking for me, time to car home and whiskers the cat before restauranting a little later on.

Although this is fun too.

I've been readingisationing these postals and am not able to make any sensoreality of it in the affirmative.

swivel is a noun and a verb. As a noun, it's a ring & pivot enabling two parts of an assembly to revolve, one without the other.

Thats becoming pedantic, not Gary Glitter.

I enjoyed my Olympicing over breakfast this morning (Olympicnicing?).

swittle - very true. I should remember that from my fishing days.

SVT - I didn't mean to appear pedantic and I recall buying swivels from a little angling shop in Wakefield in my teens.

so do you think there is some sort of link between all this medaling and peddling? something to do with  the guy who peddles getting the right gear for the guy who medals?

or would that just be meddlesome

swittle - not a problem. You pedant as much as you want to.
