A single verb usually describes an action or state --the common dimension of verb among languages.

But in addition to that it may convey more information e.g. tense, person, gender of subjective, emotion of its subjective, ... .

In its most general form among all languages which dimensions for a single verb are conceivable?

All of that information do not belong to the same category: some are morphological features, others are suprasegmental features... Also, I'm not sure what you're asking: are you looking for a list of all these features? –  Alenanno Nov 1 '12 at 11:02
@Alenanno Yes, I am looking for a list of all those features plus name of some of languages that have that feature. –  PHPst Nov 1 '12 at 11:21
You see, the fact is that Q&A sites like this are not really fit for lists. They work better with definite and narrowed down questions. I don't think you're going to get an answer like this, that's my suggestion. :) –  Alenanno Nov 1 '12 at 11:25
