I am trying to find a verb which can be used to indicate that someone is acting pedantic.
I first considered "pedanticise", but, having found only one source for this, I thought I'd broach the question here.
Edit: To clarify, I am defining pedantic to mean:
excessively concerned with minor details or rules; overscrupulous. -- Google
overly concerned with minute details or formalisms, especially in teaching. -- Dictionary.com
An example of this word used in a sentence would be, "Because Ellie spent the whole day ____ing over the grammar choices in her emails, she didn't get any work done!"
