a nerb is a word which functions both as noun and verb. a nerb has two functions. the nerb poet uses each nerb for both of its uses. in using the nerb as a noun and a verb, try to arrange the sentences so that the nerb has the same ending as noun and verb, give it a try. for example, the nerb poet likes "i dig that archeological dig" better than "i dug that archeological dig" according to her likes. also, homonyms are as acceptable as are identical spellings - either the nerb, in its two functions, sounds the same or is spelled the same. if you write a poem using nerbs i will credit you with inconsequential credit. experience the experience of the following example, in which dad lectures using several lectures.
