Yesterday, I mentioned that I liked the Verb-Noun naming of PowerShell commands. Today, Matt is writing about The Basics on How to Read PowerShell, which explains these nouns and verbs. He’ll cover some quirks with them. He also talks about case sensitivity.

I only have one other tidbit to share. Matt mentions the verbs that are used, but he doesn’t tell you how he got those verbs. In PowerShell, there’s a Get-Verb cmdlet that lists the approved verbs. If you find yourself writing cmdlets (which we’ll talk about later), then you’ll want to remember this cmdlet.
