It does indeed. Here is a link to their entry. (You will have to click the entry for 'verb' to see it.)Thanks both!
But I found extinct can be used as a verb on ".Merriam-Webster" ,so I'm quite confused. (Since I cannot post URL, I only type the website name.)
I went there and saw the word "archaic" next to the meaning of the verb. When you see "archaic" next to a dictionary entry, it means that it was used that way but is no longer. Today, it is only used as an adjective.Thanks both!

As you can see from the citation I quoted in post #3, when extinct was used as a verb, it was treated as the present tense, with extincted as a past participle:That means extinct (verb) is already the p.p. of extinguish, so there's no such a word of "extincted". Am I correct?
