Unsolicited Amazon Review:  "The Vibrant English Verb is an excellent text. It provides useful explanations, exercises and activities for the understanding and practice of verb usage. As a teacher, I believe the verb details will be creative for both educators and learners. Dr. West has incorporated great visuals and meaningful examples that explain and explore this challenging area. I'm a visual learner and especially appreciate the variety of diagrams and charts, along with the entertaining phrases. Dr. West's  excitement of linguistics is clear, and I am thankful for his wonderful thoughts and ideas."
