    Re: the difference

    Without any context it is not a noun or a verb.

    Re: the difference

    It only becomes a verb or a noun in context. By itself, it is just a word with multiple meanings.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
