Versing = to speak in or compose verse; versify
Old English fers, from Latin versus ‘a turn of the plow, a furrow, a line of writing,’ from vertere ‘to turn’; reinforced in Middle English by Old French vers, from Latin versus.
Why do kids say versing?
It’s in the Macquarie Dictionary.
The battle has been lost folks.

The Macquarie Dictionary's "if a sufficient number of people are using it, then it's correct" approach is misconceived. It's wrong. Simple as that. https://t.co/mx8xgTnEKT

They are describing language as it is used. That's all. Other dictionaries may be prescriptive and proscriptive, but that is not what Macquarie is trying to do. It's pretty simple.
