All this madeupical wordification stranges me.

Well, yes, it's a gerund in the sense that it ends in -ing, but it's a verb (and a madeupical one, at that) in the sense that "noun" isn't a verb and I just made it one. Nanny nanny foo foo.
But on Wordie, all bets are off. ;-)
In English class we called these gerunds...
Making a word into a noun by simply using it as one. E.g., "Verbing weirds language," in which "verbing" is a noun, but of course it can also be a verb... Just see verbing already.
