Something came back to me just now.
Remember The Last Crusade, and even though there were so many verbs, you could use all of them? Well you couldn't.

What, if anything, was the WHAT IS verb supposed to do?

I used it on everything and anything.
I don't have a link to a screenshot.
I'm sure some nice person will post one.(hint)

The WHAT IS verb was used in the older games. You clicked on it and then you could hover your pointer over objects to see their names. It was particularly useful, for instance, when you were looking for a light (i.e. Maniac Mansion). WHAT IS became automatic with your cursor starting with Monkey Island 1 (unless the NES version of MM came out first).
