Editor’s Corner: Install is a verb

I’m feeling very Grinchy today: small-hearted, green, and a bit furry. Here is something I would like to call your attention to. Whether you are talking about installing sprinklers, software, or a rotating bed, the infinitive of the verb is to install.

For example:

· He is installing solar-powered lights on the roof.

· I would install a frozen yogurt machine in my dream house.

The noun associated with this verb is a word all its own: installation.

For example:

· You can see the latest installation of Christo’s art along the Arkansas River.

· We provide an installation guide with each product, which will help you install the necessary software.

Sad editors: The install is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Happy editors: The installation is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
