I must tell you that ever since you opened up my mind to the concept of efflux, I've been thinking of my own body's cells busily effluxing metal--in other words: conceptually my mind has easily accepted the action-verbacious 'efflux' as a very useful one for describing a process I'd like to know more about.
Interesting, don't you agree, how something incorrect can cause hundreds of new thoughts? Efflux has been flexing its thought-inspiring muscles.

You did mean "fluxing" its thought-inspiring muscles, didn't you, Wordwind.
I can't see any alternative. There isn't a common English verb form of these roots: influx - influence - (v.) to influence, but -ence is obviously a noun suffix converted to a verb. If we took verbs out of Latin -flu- we might expect "to influe" or "to efflue" or "to reflue", but I can't think of anything existing like that. So "efflux" is the natural English verb from nlun "efflux", isn;t it?
