hello everybody -

i have a problem with the verbs that are used as a nouns, for instance :-

i will work on it today. ( work is a verb in this sentence )

that's is your work . ( work is a noun in this sentence )

can we use all the verbs in english as nouns like work or are there some exceptions ?

English is a very adaptable language.
Some words can be used as different parts of speech. You have to check the dictionary which will tell you what parts of speech a word can have.
One way that the language changes is by using a noun as a verb, or a verb as a noun.

In my sentences, many words can be used in different ways.

Use: Verb or noun, but they are pronounced differently.

Part: verb or noun.

Check: verb or noun or adjective.
Word: verb or noun.

Sentence: verb or noun.

These can only be verbs:
Have

These verbs have unrelated meanings as a noun.

Can: verb (auxilliary)

Will: verb (auxilliary)
Tell

These can only be nouns:
