The Wells dictionary has the following entry:
akcel/o accelerate; further, promote;
Surely it should be "akceli" if we are talking about a verb? But "akceli" isn't listed. Usually, when a root form can take both a verb and noun ending, it's listed differently, e.g.:
akcent/o, -i accent, stress
Plena Ilustrita Vortaro has both "akceli" (to accelerate) and "akcelo" (acceleration).
