少 is a VERB? Are there other verbs I don't know about ?

Hi @YuQinCai, @Constance_Fang @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this:
少 is a verb? Holy (&&^&^&^%)((^^%$, Batman! Please do a lesson helping us learn to use 少 and other underused verbs!

Your question made me think of the movie title 一个都不能少。 I suppose that’s an example of 少 as a verb. The English translation of the movie title was “Not One Less” but if you wanted to make the “less” a verb I suppose you could translate it as “lack”: Maybe “Not Even One May Lack.”
