To think that I should have lived to be goodmorninged by Belladonna Took’s son, as if I was selling buttons at the door!
As Gandalf’s exclamatory remark above illustrates, English has no restrictions that preclude some certain class of words, let alone nouns, from being used as verbs.
However, whether your listener or reader will understand what you mean by this innovation is a different matter. This may be especially true if the noun you’re trying to use as a verb is itself already derived from a verb, because people will then have to figure out whether you mean something different than would have been meant had you reverted to the original verb that the noun derived from.
So in the text up to this point, with duplicates removed, we have these candidates:
- to son — ok
- to button — already a verb
- to door — ok
- to remark — already a verb
- to English — ok
- to class — why not to classify?
- to word — already a verb
- to restriction — why not to restrict? how would this be different?
- to noun — ok
- to verb — ok
- to listener — why not to listen?
- to reader — how is this different from to read?
- to innovation — why not to innovate
- to matter — already a verb
- to text — recently verbed
- to point — already a verb
- to people — already a verb
- to duplicate — already a verb
- to candidate — ok
So nouns that are already verbs, or which have base forms that verbs, may be more resistant to verbing. But there is no general rule, because English lets you do whatever you want without whatever you have.
No reason to stop with nouns. Both yessing and to a lesser extent also noing are well attested. From the ever-neologuing world of computer programming there’s anding together two integers, or foreaching across an array, or even withing something. Then of course there’s thouing someone instead of youing or yousing or yalling them.
As for being goodmorninged, that one I’ll leave you to work out for yourself just why it works so well there. See the complete text where Gandalf the Lexicographer (or would that be lexicomancer? :) is trying to work out just what all of Bilbo’s many goodmornings actually mean in context.
