Is "awake" a verb? I think the verb is "awaken" and the verbal sense should be moved there. Hippietrail 02:13, 2 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Yes, "awake" is a verb, and "awaken" is a synonym. There's a movement in J.S. Bach's Canata #140, Wachet auf, which is usually translated into English as "Sleepers, awake!" -- Ortonmc 04:56, 2 Feb 2004 (UTC)
