I like your point about different structures not needing a general term in the old world when the language was still only in vernacular form.

However Per seems to point out that the roots of this form of word may be older than "english" as we know it.

sampling, changeling, hanging, scrapings, shavings, icing... These are not slang. They are gerunds that gained permanent usage.
