    A couple of points, Don'tBanMe.

    1. It is forum policy not to help with homework. This appears to be homework.
    2. Fortunately no harm has been done. The OP asked for verbs, and you provided nouns, pronouns and adjectives.

    Whoops, dude. I didn't know he was asking for verbs. hehe
    But then again, look at his member type. He's a teacher. That could be a teaching plan!
    So, can't i help him?

    If your contribution is helpful. I am not sure that the following words fall into the 'helpful' category:

    i-alphabet B ?
    ei- lei?, it has two pronunciation, /leɪ/ or / 'leɪi / ?

    ps. I am old and old-fashioned enough not to appreciate being addressed as 'dude'.

    You need the book that I haven't written yet, mapping vowel spellings to sounds! Faute de mieux, use OneLook Dictionary Search .

    Well, I'm aware of that well. I know my answer is not very helpful hehe
    By the way, sorry old man. I really don't wish to argue with you.- -
    Why're you always provoking me?
    Anyway, I'll try to improve myself. Thank you for your comment!

    That's great. Sorry, I'm busy preparing for my oral test which is scheduled tomorrow.
    Man, I get used to speaking American English, but I have to pronounce each words in RP(received pronunciation) though. What a disaster to me. Hehe
