Transcript of Verbs

Verbs A verb tells about an action or a state of being. It forms the main part of the predicate of a sentence. There are three types of verbs: action, linking, and auxiliary. An action verb expresses action. It tells what a person or a thing does. Action Verbs We bake a pretty cake. We ski down the hill. To find out if it's an action verb, you can ask yourself if that word expresses something you can do. Can you pretty? No. Can you cake? Of course not. If you can bake, then that's the action verb.

can Linking Verbs A linking verb is a verb that links the subject of the sentence
with the rest of the sentence. Sometimes liking verbs
are called "state-of-being-verbs." The apple is red. The perfume smells fresh. To identify linking verbs from action verbs, linking verbs do not show action, though smell is an action, it is not a character that is doing the action, it is just a linking verb of how the perfume smells. Helping Verbs A helping verb is a verb that goes with
another verb. It has no meaning on its own. A helping verb always comes before the main verb. There can be more than one helping verb
in a sentence. I am showing you the flowers. Shila has been walking to school. Questions QUIZ Quiz Answers 1. What is the helping verb?
