If it were me, I would do this with Python's Natural Language Toolkit (http://nltk.org).  Specifically, the examples on this page show how easy it is to extract verbs, nouns and adjectives:


It would be very straightforward to write a small Python script that would use the NLTK to identify each of these types of words from a string, and then if you want call this from TextMate (e.g., passing the current window content as input).
