- verb:  Latin verbum originally meant simply ‘word’ (a sense preserved in English verbal , verbiage , and verbose ); the specific application to a ‘word expressing action or occurrence’, which passed into English via Old French verbe, is a secondary development. Verbum goes back ultimately to the Indo- European base *wer-, which also produced English word. English verve  comes ultimately from the Latin plural verba.
=> verbose, verve, word
