A verb tells of an action or a state of being

.


A verb tells of an action or a state of being

A verb tells of an action or a state of being.

  • State of being.


Action verbs

Action Verbs:

  • Explode! Scream! Sneeze! Text! Kick! What are these words doing? They are expressing action, something that a person, animal, force of nature, or thing can do. As a result, we call these words action verbs.


Action verb examples

Action verb examples:

  • Ex. Carlos watched pretty women in skimpy bikinis parading on the beach.

  • Watching is something that Carlos can do.

  • Ex. The alarm clock buzzed like an angry bumblebee.

  • Buzzing is something that the alarm clock can do.


Linking verbs

Linking Verbs

  • Linking verbs do not express action. Instead, they connect the subject of the verb (predicate) to additional information about the subject. Linking verbs tell of a state of being.

  • The most common linking verb is “To be” (and all of its forms). Other linking verbs include appear, feel, grow, look, prove, remain, smell, sound, taste. (Sometimes these verbs are linking verbs; sometimes they are action verbs.) WHAT!? (Before you freak out, see the next slide!)


Huh how do you tell when they are action verbs and when they are linking verbs

Huh? How do you tell when they are action verbs and when they are linking verbs?

  • appear, feel, grow, look, prove, remain, smell, sound, taste. (Sometimes these verbs are linking verbs; sometimes they are action verbs.)

  • If you can substitute am, is, or are and the sentence still sounds logical, you have a linking verb on your hands.

    • The rose smells beautiful. (The rose is beautiful.) Because “is” can replace “smells”, “smells” is a linking verb

    • She smells the pizza. (She is the pizza.) Huh…doesn’t make sense, so in this case “smells” is an action verb.

Adjectives

Adjectives


Adjectives1

Adjectives:

  • Tell you about, or describe, a NOUN or PRONOUN.


Adjectives tell you about

Adjectives tell you about:

  • What kind:

    • Ex. Big, blue, round, short, spectacular

  • How many:

    • Ex. A, ten, lots, some, several, one

  • Which ones:

    • Ex. That, those, his, hers, their, your, its, the

  • One, big, robustpig ate thoserottenbeets.


Please note

Please note:

  • Articles (a, an, the) are considered adjectives.

  • To help you find adjectives…

    • Find the noun(s) and pronoun(s) in a sentence and ask yourself if there are any words describing them.

  • Ex. Yourdog ate my baseballhat.

    • “Your” is telling us about which specific dog is being discussed.

    • At first glance, you might be tempted to say baseball is a noun, but upon closer inspection, we see that, in this case, the word baseball actually describes the noun hat. Therefore, baseball is an adjective in this sentence.
