Verbal and Oral :

Some people insist that “verbal” refers to anything expressed in words, whether written or spoken, while “oral” refers exclusively to speech; but in common usage “verbal” has become widely accepted for the latter meaning.

However, in legal contexts, an unwritten agreement is still an “oral contract,” not a “verbal contract.”
