Start explaining some verb to your students by giving examples of its use in sentences, only replacing the actual word with 'coffeepot'.
Variation: have your students ask you questions using 'coffeepot' instead of the actual verb.
You can do the same with noun, replacing the words with 'thingby'.
Something you do. DO YOU COFFEEPOT IN THE MORNING?
Something. IS THE THINGBY ROUND/SQUARE?
