I'm looking for a set of five verbs in the English language that each A.) have only one vowel and B.) share all the remaining letters in the same order. The closest example I can think of off the top of my head is [bag / beg / bog / bug] but big
isn't a verb.

If no such set of five verbs exists I'd be happy to hear of sets of four, or even the sets of three that you can think up. If a set of five nouns exists I'd like to know though I won't be as excited about it. Finally, if you do find a set of five verbs that fit that criteria I'd love to know how you came across them. Just thought about it until you worked it out? Did a web search? Used a program like The Electronic Alveary?
