In English, pretty much any noun can be used as a verb.
Also, string does have a verb form. It can mean âto thread on or as if on a stringâ or âto put together (words, ideas, etc.) like objects threaded on a stringâ or âto form into strings.â
In computing, a string is a series of characters that have been strung together.
