Traditionally, verbs express actions, transformations or states: pada ‘it’s raining,’ jciemnia sid ‘it’s getting dark,’ jestem ‘I am (present).’

In Polish “verb” is czasownik (words of czas ‘time’).

It is worth noting that the group of words is open, and new verbs are constantly added to the Polish vocabulary, e.g., grillowaf ‘to grill,’ kliknbf ikond (w) <+acc> ‘to click on the icon.’
