Verb to explore caves

Postby paul_a_j » 2017-10-17, 19:50

My dictionary has the word спелеолог for someone who goes in caves. Is there a verb for the action, something like the English "caver/caving" "climber/climbing"?
Cheers Paul

In case there isn't any particular direct equivalent to that English verb in Russian, could there be a Work-Around Alternative?

While not knowing too much about Russian yet, what I do know is that words can be combined with each other for expressing many, many different things. This is _at least_ remotely comparable to the German idea of concattinating two or more nouns.

I don't know if it (i.e. combining two or more words just like building blocks) is used for _both_ of Russian nouns and verbs.

If it is done to verbs, too :), then I think it would be especially easy.
And if it is being done to nouns only, then one could "make up" :) a noun describing the activity, and then talking about it using a "helper" verb like "do" or "make".
