A good way to butcher the language is to convert your verbs to nouns. You can do this easily: take an interesting verb (like butcher), castrate it by adding a duller verb in front of it (like “to subject to”.) and then humiliate it by saddling it with an ugly suffix. For example a y, or an ification - upon which act of desecration it will be a noun. This is called nominalisation, and lawyers do it all the time.

The solicitor subjected the English language to butchery.
For bonus points and a shot at the challenging stage, take a verb you have nominalised, and convert it back into a verb again. As a lawyer, you are obligated to action this sort of behaviour from time to time.
