Probably not always. Most of the examples that I can think of off the top of my head have to do with emerging technologies. "Facebook me." "I'll Google it." These are okay--short and also specific, which I respect. Though I'm not a fan of saying "google" for "search" if Google is not the search engine, as that is kind of misleading instead of specific.
What I really like--and what has me writing on this topic to begin with-- is when the language is used more playfully and willfully, so that it has poetry as well as efficiency. I recently read Karen Russell's Sleep Donation and jotted down two examples:
"We moth along toward the lights."
"Moth along." Kind of great, right? She's describing human beings at a night market. It evokes a different visual image and / or sense of intent from "walking", or "traveling" or "moving"--this is more haphazard. And there's mood too--a sense of danger, of bad judgement in action. For a short phrase it does a lot of work.
Here's another: "She has to houdini out of her restraints."
Not just struggle or wiggle--though certainly we feel wiggling is part of it. But we feel that "she" has a willfulness, and intent to escape her restraints such that she is doing something a little outside the possible. Like Houdini.
