Verb/Noun Combos?

Are there any natlangs that have a verb and noun combined into one word?
I'm not talking about the agglutinative languages (which absolutely terrify
me). My brain isn't functioning (I just went on a day trip from south-of-
Cleveland to Chicago), so I can't remember the word I wanted to use, but an
example is: I'd like my newest language to have words that function as both
verbs and nouns at the same time. Hey, Meisteik has a particle that fills
in when the verb or noun is already known, implied, not important, sounds
wrong; or is occasionally used as a form of "to be" (Meisteik has
absolutely no other way to express it); why not a conlang with verb-noun

If this is hard to understand or just plain idiotic, sorry. As I said, we
went to Chicago today, and I think my brain got scrambled from riding in
the car for twelve hours. With my dad driving. *shudders*
