I. A verb shows action or links a word in the predicate to the subject.

II. Types of verbs

    A. Action verbs: tells what action someone or something is performing

        1. Transitive verbs: an action verb that has the receiver of the action named in the sentence (In other words, it has a direct object -DO)

        2. Intransitive Verbs: an action verb that does not have a direct object


    B. Linking verbs: a verb that connects the subject with a word that describes or identifies it.

        1. Forms of be: be, am, is, are, was, were, have been, has been, had been, is being, am being, are being, was being, were being,

        2. Other linking verbs: appear, become, feel, grow, look, remain, seem, smell, sound, stay, taste, turn

    C. Helping verbs: a verb which is placed before other verbs to form verb phrases.

        1. Forms of be: is, was being, should be, had been, might have been

        2. Other helping verbs: do, does, did, have, has, had, shall, should, will, would, can, could, may, might, must

        3. Helping verbs can be separated by others words. In fact, most questions have a helping verb, then the subject and then the main verb so always look for a helping verb with interrogative sentences.
