Is there a specific verb in English (perhaps come into the language from the northern Canadian wetlands?) which would describe the process of an area becoming bog / marshland / swamp (combined or separate)?
I tried the Google options for each (a la "verb for to become swamp") and didn't get anything which would match.
The opposite, at least when an anthropogenic process and intended, exists, and is 'to drain':
- cause the water or other liquid in (something) to run out, leaving it empty or dry.
Edit (Clarifications): I should note -- as the comments already did -- that appreciably, 'bog', 'marsh', and 'swamp' all describe different wetlands. I am most interested in 'bog', but I reasoned that either of the other two processes could also be helpful if described as a verb.
