Subject: new verb?
Heard on a local piedmont, North Carolina, TV station, concerning the
feelings of an 81-year-old man about the fact that Hurricane Fran had blown
the steeple off a Wilmington, NC, baptist church: "He had seen all of his
children baptized in that church, and his wife was funeralized there as
well." Is this a new usage? Do you suppose he and the now-deceased wife were
nuptialized in that church, too?
