 The big question is this: how should these words be morphologically related to one another? Here are some options. The big question is this: how should these words be morphologically related to one another? Here are some options.
-  * Use the same word for the noun and verb, like with "​drink"​. This is simple, and the fact that nouns often have an article helps. The disadvantage is that ambiguity can arise due to the lack of marking - hence the present page in the wiki! +  * Use the same word for the noun and verb, like with "​drink"​.

-  *Inflect all verbs for the present tense and imperative mood, e.g. with **-e** or **-a**. This would make the noun/verb distinction always clear, and derivation between the two would be simple. The disadvantage is all verbs having an extra syllable, which would often feel tedious and redundant.+  *Inflect all verbs for the present tense and imperative mood, e.g. with **-e** or **-er** or **-a**. This would make the noun/verb distinction always clear, and derivation between the two would be simple. The disadvantage is all verbs having an extra syllable, which would often feel tedious and redundant, mainly to non-Scandinavians.

This gives you clarity, but it makes the language harder to learn - although if the number of such pairs was low, the increased learning burden might not be so bad.   * Have separate roots, like with "​song/​sing"​.
