122 Examples of Analysis Verbs

 ,
Analysis verbs are verbs that are used in an analysis to explain a source, argument, hypothesis, fact or data item. This inherently reveals your opinion about the source such that selecting an accurate verb is a critical element of analysis. For example, it is very different to say that a source "reveals" something than to say that is "speculates" about something. The following are useful analysis verbs.

Notes

Analysis verbs are used to both explain your own arguments and those of your sources. Using strong verbs that don't match the evidence at hand can be viewed as a failure of critical thinking. Weak verbs can come off as cowardly and negate the importance of a source or finding.
In many cases, the common verbs are the strongest and most effective. For example, "shows" is just as strong as "proves" but is almost always the better word.
