Huge difference between flexibility allowing "verbing" of nouns and a limited vocabulary meaning you have no other option. It's an import, this verbing everything and when you can't verbalise, stick a -wise on the end.

To be fair, I have made good beer money out of bullshit bingo games at public sector conferences and presentations. If it weren't for such terms, especially as mumbled in revered tones by management consultants, many of us would be bored as we couldn't play bullshit bingo any more.
