I am looking for a wordlist file (in a reable text format) of atleast
1,000+ verbs in the regular format of a wordlist (single word/phrase
per line).
I tried searching for one on Google, and found lots of regular
wordlists, but none that are specifically VERBS only. A simple link to
the download page or to the wor d listing is sufficient enough for me
to accept the answer. Thank you.

Im seeing that there is someone answering this question from the very
minute I posted it, and even up until now, with an average of 6 hours
passed since then. I guess its really difficult to find it?
