I’m grading a stack of papers, and one student uses the verb dragooned. It means to coerce. It’s simply a great verb (and one I’ve never used).
Then, I read how a student has tangoed with the idea of a certain career. It’s not really a verb, but she uses it as one. I see the dance in my head, including all the abrupt starts and stops.
I’m tangoing with the idea of dragooning my husband into making dinner tonight.
Have you found a great new verb lately?
