parts of speech question

In a language sample we are analyzing, CHAT/CLAN is counting “crack” as a
noun and not a verb in a description of picture showing a boy breaking a
window.  The participant is obviously using it as a verb without the
morphological marker “boy crack the window” but CHAT/CLAN seems to be
coding that as a noun each time she uses it as a verb.  Any ideas about how
to make CHAT/CLAN count this as a verb in the analysis?  Thanks!
