Together We Will Upgrade The English Language

If something has a bad odor, it stinks. What do you call it if it has a nice odor? There is no verb for this. We need a verb. Other languages probably have a word for it. We cannot allow a “verb gap” to occur.

My suggestion: To vanil, from the noun vanilla which has a wonderful fragrance.

Your suggestions please. The state of the English language and civilization at large depends on your participation.

My cookbook, Following Good Food Around the World, with its 180 wonderful recipes, my newest novel, Do Lutheran Hunks Eat Mushrooms, a hilarious apocalyptic thriller, and all my other books, are available on
