Locker

verb Word formation type: Derivation
The action of going to one's locker.
 
The neologism was developed from the noun 'locker' and the phrase "going to my locker". Instead of completely saying out this phrase, the subject shortened it to just 'locker', creating a verb out of a noun without adding any morphemes. This word could be used to refer to any locker, but it is typically used only by students in high school.
Etymology : [Lock + -er] A derivational change where the noun 'locker' becomes the verb 'locker'.
Source : "I need to go locker." [Students at College Park High School; August 2011]
