    Wink Re: noun or verb?

    In that case I'd say that "offer" is a verb because you do something...

    Lightbulb Re: noun or verb?

    okie... how about in this case "Offer opportunity" offer becomes noun?



    Are they the same?

    Offer Opportunities
    Offers Opportunity
    offers opportunities

    Re: noun or verb?

    I'd have thought it was a verb...

    Conjugation of 'to offer'
    I offer, you offer, he offers, she offers, it offers, one offers, we offer, they offer
