Think about how language both shapes and reflects culture. With that in mind, consider what my mentor told me. The Mayan language is verb-centric, and English is noun-centric. 

Verbs are dynamic and nouns are static. 

I observe people verbing more. We're turning nouns into verbs with new words like Googling, tweeting and branding. It suggests to me that our culture is becoming more dynamic. 

Which strikes me as a good thing, since life is dynamic. It helps when words match reality.
