There is the verb 'to noun', so that means there is the word 'nouning'. I found the term verbal noun - a noun that is morphologically related to a verb and similar to it in meaning - an example is: Brisk walking is good exercise.
I wonder if there is something that can't be 'nouned'. What isn't a person, place, thing, quality or idea?
So back to our lead line today - this is a picture of a primula dell at Winterthur last spring - a small valley, usually among trees. This one was magnificently planted in candelabra primulas. One of the benefits of Winterthur is that it is magnificently planted - one of the legacies of Henry Francis du Pont. May 15th is primula day at Winterthur. This is the view you would experience.
