verbal compounds/incorporation

Two verb-verb compounds:

panic-buy:

test-solve:

It’s possible these are noun-verb compounds, but I’d argue they’re more ‘panic and buy’ and ‘test and solve’, even though both panic and test can also be nouns.

And two noun-verb incorporations. I’m counting these as incorporation rather than just compounding (after Mithun) b/c in both cases the noun would otherwise be the object of the verb.
