Podd is an educational game for the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron, published by Acornsoft in 1984.

The eponymous main character teaches young users various verbs, performing an appropriate animation when a recognised word is typed in.

The object of the game is to find the 120 verbs that Podd can recognise. Several words are mapped to one animation (e.g. "walk", "hike", "stroll", etc.), and children who realise this will be able to guess more words by thinking of synonyms for the words that have already been discovered.
