It is difficult to do this with verbs that have effects on objects, but we
have created a 'verb editor' using XML for socials in the Skotos lib that
allows a wizard to add quite complex socials.

This is a pre-alpha example, but it give you the idea.

  <verb third="accuses" verb="accuse">
   <form form="AV">
      $Adv $Verb the world of something.
   <form form="AVE">
      $Adv $Verb the world, $(Evoke).
   <form form="AVO">
      $Adv $Verb $OName of something.
   <form form="AVOE"/>
   <form form="V">
      $Verb the world of something.
   <form form="VA">
      $Verb the world of something $Adv.
   <form form="VE">
      $Verb the world, $(Evoke).
   <form form="VO">
      $Verb $OName of something.
   <form form="VOA">
      $Verb $OName of something $Adv.
   <form form="VOAE"/>
   <form form="VOE"/>
