The Verb As Signifier

From the BBC:

The government is currently reviewing its policy to prevent violent extremism,
known as Prevent, which is a key part of its wider counter-terrorism strategy.

Alongside its policy to encourage economic growth, called Encourage, its policy to deal with benefit fraud, called Deal, and its policy to tackle knife crime, called Tackle.

Not to mention its plans to reduce the hegemony of the EU and restore Britain's sovereignty, which it calls Yes, Massa, Sho Massa, Any Ting You Say.
