Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Miscellany Journal?
OP When did journal become a verb? I know it is a noun but it is also being used as a verb. I heard it used as a verb at a writers conference in 2000 and I have heard the term many times since then. It is not in the dictionary yet but I know it is in use. The word journaling is also in use. Does any one know when this happened?
I've noticed the same with "scrapbook." Verbifying nouns is a time-honored tradition, though the phenomenon seems to be occurring a lot more often these days. We shall await the lexical pundits.
When did journal become a verb?
COED has a citation from 1803.
OP really? How interesting. I have only heard it used as a verb in the past few years.
