Transcript of VERBS

Linking verbs are verbs that do not show action; instead, the linking verb renames or describes the subject.
In this example sentence, "
The kitten

looked happy
" the verb
looked
is used as a linking verb. Many times the verb
looked
is an action verb because someone is looking for something, but in the example sentence,
looked
describes the kitten in the predicate and that makes looked function as a linking verb. If the word happy is used in the subject, then happy would have been an ordinary adjective.
VERBS
