Here are my 'kernel verbs':
Level 1: do
Level 2: get, set, insert, delete, allocate, deallocate, validate, resource.peform, run, locate and receive
[warning - this is first pass]
I'm still working on level 3. It will probably look like a cleaned up version of the J2EE verbs. I'll remove the synonyms and change some of the state oriented verbs into nouns. All level 3 verbs are just combinations of level 2 verbs. Creating level 3 will likely shake out my level 2.
I'll take a look at the .Net verbs as well. I already did the assembly language verbs - I thought it would be interesting but I failed to gain much insight; odd eh?
