In TFD, 'demerit' shows only a noun

roughen > neaten

"I gotta go, Julia. We got cows."

Thanks, Audiendus! I checked your link, and what it shows is that "demerits" is indeed a verb, but it is not in the infinitive, as per the rules. We still like you :)

task > ken

"I gotta go, Julia. We got cows."

Thanks, Audiendus! They do show 'demerit' as the infinitive, Alice, just before the brackets.
Language never ceases to amaze me. Pray

ken - neglect

↑You're right about that, thanks :) (And, it says 'Verb' in bold black letters, too!)

neglect > treat
