Welsh - Verb-Nouns

It is true that welsh has more than one true verb, but not thousands.
The main one of course is the various forms of bod... the "verb-nouns" I
would not count as true verbs... although that's just my opinion. :) The
reason is that all the verb-nouns are used in conjunction with another
verb (and must be marked when they are fulfilling the role of a verb).
That is actually what I was doing with my last conlang mainly... it
combined ideas from several language I find interesting, like Welsh,
Tagalog, and a few others.
