    "Input"

    Please give me examples of using "input" as verb. Is it correct to say:

    I sent you a design proposal, please give me you input in return by email.

    Thank you.

    In your sentence 'input' is not a verb, it's a noun.

    I don't often hear "input" as a verb, but here are some examples that turn up in a Google search: input.

    I would say your example sentence is correct. The noun "input" is commonly used in that way. However, it's listed as a usage problem in the dictionary. I would read the usage note here: input - usage note.
