"Leverage" is not a verb. It is a noun.

That is all.


  1. I've been watching a stream of internal marketing emails passing through my inbox from one of my large corporate clients.

    You would think that marketing people would learn how to use a language before writing a press-release, but apparently they can't tell the difference between a noun and a verb.

  2. Thank you so much for getting the word out. I am a fellow Grammar Nazi. I hope you don't mind if I add another little tidbit?

    The word "anymore" can only be used in a negative sentence.

    Correct: "I do not watch television anymore."

    Incorrect: "All I do is watch television anymore."

    This seems to be an all too common problem. I just figured I would help you in your struggle to spread literacy.
