That's 26 new tones and 6 new verbs, bringing the totals to 258 tones and 54 verbs. A couple interesting tidbits on this batch:

This is surprisingly not the first time we have something that is only one character off from an existing item (exclaim / explain). One pair, for instance, is wishful/wistful.

We now have 11 dis- tones, but only one of the words that is made by removing the dis- from them (though the majority of them don't make a valid tone).

We added two new tones with -ious endings, and they're both unusual in that they pronounce it "ee-us" instead of "shuss" (as in flirtatious or suspicious). They're not the first, though; mysterious, oblivious, and obsequious precede them.
