LOAN IS A NOUN. LEND IS A VERB!
No one "loans" you money. They LEND you money.
The entire loan/lend corruption reached its peak when pawn shops began saying "we will loan you more money"
How can they NOUN you?
They can verb you, but they can’t noun you.
I’m not alone in my dismay over this corruption. A fellow blogger wrote:
one points out that someone’s misusing a word, suddenly everyone thinks
they’re an Oxford lexicographer, quite within their rights to discuss
the morphological trends of the english lexicon, even though they
generally don’t know what lexica or morphology are, nor even realize
that there are criteria for adopting a new denotation or slang trend.
You can LEND me all the money you want. I will appreciate the loan.
Get it? Got it. Good.
