Tristan opined: "Penny, you weren't looking hard enough either.  I said 'I fail to find a non-capitalized noun form of welsh.'  The definition you gave is a verb form."

The puzzle says "What is the only word in the English language that when capitalized is changed from a noun or a verb to a nationality?" (...OR a verb, not AND a verb.) So I guess I don't know why you were apparently objecting to a verb as an answer. (****Penny leaves very slowly******)
