incentive

< Previous | Next >
Hi, I'm looking for the "verbalized" form of "incentive". Many words come to mind (motivate, incite, encourage, actuate etc) but I'm not sure which one is the most accurate.

Thanks in advance.

    I'm reluctant to suggest it, because it's not in my favourite words list - incentivise/ize.
    Not in my list, but it's in the OED, having been used for the last fifty years or so.
