Perhaps some of you word-nerd types could help me with this. I'm trying to think of words that are dependent on certain other words. It's a little difficult to explain, but the words below are examples we've come up with. Like "boggle": you can't boggle anything other than your mind, right? You can't, you know, boggle your elbow. Well, I guess you could try. And "neap" and "ebb", they never describe anything other than a tide. And I'm sure you can figure out the rest. The only questionable one is "thwart". Because I guess you could probably find a way to thwart stuff other than plans. I'm hoping this makes sense.
purse (as a verb)
(The ones with question marks are up for debate.)
Can you think of any more?
