It's helpful. Thank you.

 

  I have added two words to the list.

 

   "Inquire"   and   "Question"  as   verbs, as in:

 

  "I wish to inquire."= (to ask)

 

  and

 

"I would question that information." (I would challenge it,  or not accept it as fact.)

 

  I wanted to show that there can be a very simple "formula"   for practicing the construction of sentences using these verbs.

 

   For example,  if I want to create a  specific sentence using the verb  ACCEPT, I must create a specific "object" or "subject"  to which the verb applies.

 

  EXAMPLE:   "I accept that there are Good and Bad People in the world."

 

   But, for a much simpler  practice in making sentences, I can use the general term,  that.

 

   So to practice with many of these Most Common Verbs, I can make very simple sentences like this:

 

   "I can accept that."

   "I can achieve that."

   "I can discover that."

    "I can state that."

   "I can wash that."

 

   There are exceptions.  Not all of these Most Common Verbs   can be used in such simple sentences without a minor change.

 

 FOR EXAMPLE:   It would be awkward grammar to write or say. I WANT TO ACCOUNT THAT.

 

Instead, I can say for a smooth and correct construction:    "I want to account for that."

or   "I can account for that."

  

    Feel free to attempt some sentence constructions  using these Verbs, and perhaps forum members can correct them for you.

 

.

 

Bruce, why don't you give the link where you copied all these verbs from?

 

Very Good  Gerardo:

 

      Let's use "jettison".

 

  "I can jettison my previous verb list, and replace it with the new list which includes jettison."
