comment How should one-word “commands” work in languages other than English?
Yes, I agree that perfect consistency is just impossible. I'm just looking for something a bit more consistent than "one word". Something that defines the intent in a better way.

comment How should one-word “commands” work in languages other than English?
Ok, point taken. How about if we call it "a verb without an explicit object" ? I'm just trying to arrive at a more consistent description and I think we agree that "one word" doesn't really fit that bill. Right?

comment How should one-word “commands” work in languages other than English?
What I mean is probably defined as a bare verb, without any additional semantics, even if it consists of multiple words. Maybe I should rephrase the answer.

comment Using Pathfinder's variant “Wounds and Vigor” rules
Welcome Josh. It would be better if you can rephrase your question in a way that encourages specific answers, rather than a discussion. Stackexchange sites aren't very good with discussion type questions.

comment Guide to writing an RPG - Examples inline or at the end?
I think this is a complex issue involving many disciplines. I suggest you ask writers, graphic designers and UX experts for their very valuable advice. I also think that this is off topic here.

Although I'd agree that this correctly represents the inevitable bias that choice of language introduces, I'd also say that the definition of the spell can be improved to be more consistent across languages.

Trust me, I speak a couple more languages of different groups, know a bit about some others, and the dictionary definition of a verb is the same, although how a verb is represented varies widely.

How about "exhume", a single word verb that automatically involves soil, or "cut", a verb that may be misunderstood in many different ways? You'll probably never get it to be 100% consistent across languages but you may increase consistency with a one verb rule that excludes nouns, even compounded ones.
