Well, the Sydney Morning Herald has got me going today by reporting a sign somewhere asking taxis 'not to rank' there.
It's just one sign, so maybe we can nip this in the bud! No, no, no, you definitely cannot have this verb because it is already a verb with a whole different meaning, OK?
To rank is to be placed in a hierarchy of status. So, I would advise taxis not to rank in case they might rank 'unter Uber', to mangle my mother tongue!
COMPLETELY BEFUDDLED BY THE PLASTICITY OF ENGLISH?
PETER THE PROOFER CAN SET IT IN STONE!
