If you succeed academically, you are outcasted." Has anyone met this reverbalizing of a deverbalized adjective before [to coin a term]? is the process common? -- _____________________________________________________________________ david.bergdahl[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Ohio University / Athens Ellis Hall 114c tel: (740) 593-2783 Office hours: fax: (740) 593-2818 MTThF 10:10-11 a.m.
