What Can You Use the Random Verb Generator For?
There may be a time when you want to generate a list of random verbs instead of a list of all words. Maybe you’re looking for a verb that you can use in a game of Pictionary or MadLibs, or simply want to generate a list of verbs. Our tool does just that.
There are an estimated 171,476 verbs in the English language depending on which dictionary you reference. That’s a lot of verbs!
Types of Verbs
There are four types of verbs: intransitive, transitive, linking, and passive.
Intransitive verbs are verbs that when combined with the subject provide a complete thought. They do not need an object. For example, “I ran in the race” or simply “I ran”.
Transitive verbs express action that is received or ends with an object. For example, “I hit the baseball” or “We beat them”.
Linking verbs include senses (smell, taste, look, feel, sight) and some other verbs including “be”, “seem”, “become”, and “remain”. These verbs connect the subject with a complement. For example, “She is a doctor” or “I feel sick”.
Passive verbs are used when the subject receives the action rather than performs the action. They are usually identified by the use of a tense of the word “be”. For example, “The bird is flying in the air”.
How Do You Generate a List of Random Verbs?

How Many Verbs Does Your Tool Have?
