#199463 - 04/28/11 10:41 AM Verblink
Is there a word for the linguistic figure of speech in which a verb is used that is linked to or descriptive of the subject? For example, "prices of Southwest Airlines stock soared today, while GM's drove off a cliff". I have coined a term for it: verblink.

Sounds like it could be a fun game. Kind of like Tom Swifties.
