- More Weak Verbs -
Verbs that convey the concept of accomplishment are equally to blame for bloated verb phrases. The accomplishment verbs such as cause, achieve, or accomplish can also be removed to reveal more vigorous sentences:

Lian achieved the establishment of her goals.
Lian established her goals.
Captain Zhou will accomplish orientation of the bow.
