This petition is to be used as a vehicle to lend help and support towards the Verb4Concept movement. Set in motion by copywriter Ray DelSavio, the goal of this movement is to get Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary to acknowledge and add to it's annual, the verb form of CONCEPT. By doing so the "Great Book" will more accurately reflect the vast usage of the word in various creative arenas as well as offer recognition to what, as creatives, we do on a daily basis.
