Can wake be used as a verb and a noun.
I've seen wake used as a noun such as an event or period. "The wake will be on this date", "we will arrange a wake to show our thankfulness for having this person in our life", etc.
I have never seen it used as a verb but have been told it can be.
So is it correct to say "we will wake on this day", "we have waked by doing this", "we wake for those we have lost"?
Another question about how wake is used. In my last example could it be "we wake those we have lost" without the "for"?
