    English is the hardest language to learn, as it’s full of synonyms, odd expressions, and people who don’t know proper grammar or spelling.

    There’s nothing wrong with creating new verbs from nouns. We do it all the time. There’s even a technical term for such verbs: denominative. We also go the other way and create verbal nouns.

    And it’s not just English that does this. Sanskrit is full of denominative verbs and verbal nouns.

    The idea that certain languages are harder or easier to learn is a myth. All languages are difficult as they all have irregularities and idioms that are difficult for beginners.
