It could be plain text. I need to have there all verbs with all forms written down.

I'm afraid I can't use any web source, 'cause I want to create an application that will "read" sample german book and make stats about verbs. Which was most frequently used.

Thanks for help!

    german.stackexchange.com/a/5653/2225 You could parse for verbs.

  • I have a pdf book with over 500 verbs that are conjugated in all present, perfect, prateritum etc... But I don't know if the rules of this website allow us to share contact info. If yes, then I can share it with you through some online medium. Commented May 2, 2013 at 15:23

    Can there actually exist a list of all verbs? I guess the best you can do is a list of verbs which have been used in notable sources. But German has the ability to create verbs from nouns and to create nouns by combining other nouns, therefore the total set of verbs should IMHO be unbounded (although probably no one would ever say things like "donaudampfschifffahrtsgesellschaftskapitänisiseren").

    I am not convinced a list is what you are looking for. Have you looked into methods of part of speech tagging from the field of natural language processing? Commented May 13, 2015 at 18:36

This simply cant exist.

A verb in german is not an element out of a list, it is a process of creation and a rule how to instatiate a concept.

Do you know those verbs?

gleichlauftesten? tiefschockgefrieren? rückenkraulen? kopplungsamplitudenverstärken? einkommenssteuerfreibetragbereinigen?

  • If something like this cant exist: What is this: verblisten.de ? In German language you always have the problem of compound words, but there are algorithms how to split them into atomic words, and those atomic words can easily be listed. Commented May 14, 2015 at 13:35
  • Question is not "most german verbs" or somethinfg like that, it is ALL german verbs. This is open ended.

If you have android or iOS you can download German Verb Conjugator app.

For Android: Here

For iOS: Here

and Here is the developer site.

    Don't! Just by looking at the website I saw some samples of the app - conjugating "malen" (paint) with "du malest" and "ihr malet". That's absolute BS for modern German. I shudder to think what other errors are lurking within, waiting to trap unwitting users.
