And, of course, compound verbs. In my auxlang days (said he, blushing)
I collected examples of compound verbs from Chinese and Japanese,
since auxlangs like Esperanto lack them as a result of their SAE

away) are
unite-stand : erect
accumulate-insert : load
hold-move : carry
buy-close : corner the market
