To 'parse', when used in the vicinity of perl, means to take a stream of input data and divide it into proper meaningful pieces. At a high level, perl code is parsed to identify operators, operands, separators, documentation, and comments so that each can be properly handled. As a lower-level example, we may have a data file that contains dates. Knowing that the dates are represented as Month, Day Year in the file, we can write perl code to 'parse' this format so we can check the dates for validity or transform them into another format, such as, YYYYMMDD.

By 'verbose', we simply mean that something uses more than the bare minimum of words needed. When used as an option on a piece of software, it usually is interpreted to mean: please give me full step-by-step details of what you are doing, program, and, if something goes wrong, give me as much information as possible about where and why it was wrong.
