    Default Question to the teacher

    Hi Sir,
    There is a tough question from my English Teacher which asks me to sort out 50 verbs ending by Z. In my opinion I believe that this may be impossible to get 50 verbs ending by Z. Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    I can't think of five offhand. I really can't see the point of such an exercise.

    I searched OneLook, which searches hundreds of dictionaries online, and it could only find 15.

    I can only think of three. Are you sure you understood the instruction from your teacher correctly? Perhaps he/she meant verbs which end -ze. There would be a lot more of them (in AmE).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I didn't know kib(b)itz, plotz, razz, sizz or spritz, though I might have guessed the meanings in context.

    Neither can I. Life's too short.

    It would take me a long time to think of 50 verbs ending with a much more common letter, such as t, e or r.
