Is "fellowship" a noun or verb? This is a question of semantics and not of religion.

Can you get together and fellowship? Most dictionaries describe it as a noun, but I hear some use it as a verb.

"fellowship" is a noun.


We might say:

Joe enjoys fellowship with his teammates.
#color(white)("XXXX")#...valid use as a noun.

but not

Joe fellowships his teammates.
#color(white)("XXXX")#...invalid attempt to use as a verb.

The given "example"
#color(white)("XXX")#Can we get together and fellowship?
is not proper English.
What was probably intended was:
#color(white)("XXX")#Can we get together and practice fellowship?
