A Word for Extra Credit

If you can explain to me what DENOMINALIZATION means and give me an example, you will earn 4 points of extra credit.  

DENOMINALIZATION means creating a verb from a noun. Examples? You can “friend” your aunt. Or “summer” in the Berkshires. “Google” the answer. “Parent” your kids. You can “transition” from accounting to sales. Some are now calling this verbing.  -- from Brian P. Cleary
