Abstract: This study investigated verb-related errors among senior secondary school students in Edo State. The purpose of the study was to identify ways that would help in reducing verb related errors in Senior Secondary Schools three (SSS3). The study adopted a descriptive survey design; four hundred SSS 3 students were used as sample, selected by simple random sampling technique. A structured questionnaire entitled Verb-Related Errors Scale (VRES) was used to elicit information from the respondents. The instrument was validated by experts and it was found reliable. Three research questions and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The data collected were analyzed using percentage for the research questions and chi- square for the null hypotheses at 0.05 significance level. The result of the study showed in one instant that there is significant difference in the number of errors committed by male and female SSS 3 students as a result of gender also; there is significant difference in the number of students' wrong use of tenses as a result of location. Based on the findings of the study and their educational implications, some recommendations were made.
