    Super computer, note that 'wrote' isn't a noun and neither is 'describe'. The same mistake is in the title of your previous thread: My write from my mind.

    Yes, see the definition of 'call somebody names': to use impolite or unpleasant words to describe someone.
    (call names - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.)

    'Wrote' is the past tense of 'write'. You could say 'I wrote a piece on the earthquake'. You cannot, however, use 'wrote' as a noun and say 'The wrote...'. You could use the noun 'piece' (or a different noun of course) and say something like 'The piece talks about the earthquake'.

    A noun related to the verb 'describe' is 'description'. See here description - Definition from Longman English Dictionary Online.
