Summary: 
In a previous study, we proposed a technique to recommend candidate verbs for a method name so that developers can consistently use various verbs. In this study, we improve the rule extraction technique proposed in this previous study. Moreover, we confirm that the rank of each correct verb recommended by the new technique is higher than that by the previous technique.
