Message from Francisco Gomes de Matos to FIPLV
Sharing the following email to WFS (World Future Society) with you, FIPLV. Ever thought of listing your 10 favourite verbs (for written communication purposes)?
Wonder what FIPLV readers` lists would look like, for different languages….
Dear friends at WFS,
As a peace linguist, I couldn`t help inventorying the verbs used in your WFS magnificently well-written webpage. Here is a list in alphabetical order:
1.advance 2.be 3. collaborate 3. create 4. culminate 5.empower 6.embark 7.envision 8.foster 9.ignite 10.improve 11.provide 12.research 13.shape 14.support
Revealingly of WFS`s constructive focus, you included advance,create,foster,improve .
May I suggest that you ask your The Futurist readers what their 10 favorite verbs are. The 14-verb list could be used as a source for selection.
