Grammar aspect


In English, a word can be used both as noon and as a verb. This can be illustrated with the poem below:

I am not so good to walk a walk
And I'm not good to talk a talk,
I am not good to ride a ride,
I am not good to kite a kite,
I am not good to fish a fish,
Nor (even worse) to cook a dish;
But if you have a drink to drink,
Let's drink together, so I think!
