Dans un courrier dat=E9 du 20/04/99 20:03:42  , Ed a =E9crit :

<< And how could you justify calling "act-of-throwing" a verb and
 not calling the gerund "throwing" in English a verb?  It acts like a noun i=
n
 English, and act-of-throwing acts like a noun in AllNoun -- fits in the sam=
e
 slots in the grammar.
  >>

Whether it's a noun or a verb does not really matter as long as the=20
substantive or gerund refers to a process whose actors are the other nouns o=
f=20
the AllNoun sentence.
the verb "to throw" is present in "throwing", "thrower", "projectile", etc.

That's what all conlangers who tried an all-noun syntax are to experience.
