Summary0001979: Phrase definition with numbers bracketing colon rejected
DescriptionA phrase definition with numbers on both sides of the colon leads to the generic "can't find a verb" error.

Presumably this has the same underlying cause as 0000110. The issue is so easy to work around, and unlikely to come up in the first place, that it's probably fine if this code is declared illegal. But if so, it would be helpful for the Problem message to make a more specific suggestion when the sentence includes something of the form "N: M".
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Foo is a room.
To (X - a number) be praised!: say X.
To recite a hymn to 3: 3 be praised!
Additional InformationThe Problem message:

Problem. In the sentence 'To recite a hymn to 3: 3 be praised !' , I can't find a verb that I know how to deal with.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious) Compiler rejects valid code
