1600 Action Verbs & A Quick Note On Bullet Points

Bullet points help you keep your writing concise, well organized, and easy to read. They draw attention to important information and make scanning a document or web page easy. The best bulleted lists are written in parallel form, which means you start them all with the same part of speech. A great strategy is to kick them off with active verbs – which is why I created this massive verb list. (1600 active verbs!)

Good tips for bulleted lists:

  1. Make sure each bullet in the list is related.
  2. Use the same font throughout the list.
  3. Keep your list short and sweet.
  4. Don’t mix complete sentences with sentence fragments.
  5. Only use periods if you use complete sentences.

 

Here's the list. It's just a simple Excel spreadsheet – but feel free to download.
