  18. The Verb in a Sentence • When diagramming a sentence, the verb is shown in the second position. There can be more than one verb in a sentence. • Subject VERB Object Noun orPronoun NounorPronoun

  19. Verbs Show Action • Action verbs are verbs that describe actions and things taking place. An action verb can usually be for actions that are in progress. • ACTION VERB EXAMPLES: She bought some books. They laughed.

  20. Action Verbs • These words express action, something that a person, animal, force of nature, or thing can do. As a result, we call these words action verbs. Look at the following examples:


  22. Showing the Action Verb in a Diagram • The handsome, smart boy wrote a scary, Halloween story. • boy wrote story Action Verb

  23. Action Verbs List • Study the Action Verbs List and use these words in your sentences to make your writing more interesting.

  24. The “to be”Verbs • The “to be” verbs have several uses in a sentence. They can be used as: • verbs, • verbs • verbs state-of-being helping linking

  25. State of Being Verbs • State of Being verbs are eight verbs that describe a state that is not an action: am, is, are, Be, was, were, been being

  26. State of Being • John fifteen years old. • John old is is State of being verb years fifteen

  27. Helping Verbs • A helping verb is not the main verb in a sentence. It helps the main verb. Some helping verbs can stand alone. Others cannot. Have, do and be are common helping verbs.

  28. Helping Verbs • To Have • I have seenmany beautiful countries. • She has won many basketball games. • They had collected many rocks.

  29. Helping Verbs • To Do • I do • You do • He, She, it does • We do • They do

  32. Other Helping Verbs • Would, May, Could,Might • Must, Being

  33. Linking Verbs • Some words can function as either a helping verb or a linking verb, but a linking verb and a helping verb are not the same thing. A linking verb stands alone as the main verb and links the subject to the predicate nominative or predicate adjective.

  34. Linking Verbs • Linking verbs do not express action but connect the subject and verb to more information. Some words can function both as a linking verb and an action verb. Linking “to be” verbs • Is, am, are, was, were, be, beingbeen.

  35. Linking Verb • The princess is pretty. “is” functions here as a linking verb. (princess = pretty) • princess pretty is Linking Verb

  36. Did You Notice? • Did you notice that the linking verb, “is” was also a “state-of- being verb? Many of the “to be” verbs can also be used as linking verbs.

  37. Assignment • Select three linking verbs from the following list. Write a short sentence using each verb. Show the subject and object connection in a diagram.

  38. Other linking verbs: • taste look smell • appear grow remain • Stay turn seem • Sound prove feel • become

  39. State of Being Verbs Show Time • Present tense: am, are, is. • Past tense verbs: was and were. • Future tense: will and shall

  40. Verbs Show Time • Verbs show time and these times are called “tenses.” There are six main Verb Tenses: • PresentPastFuture • Present Perfect Past Perfect • Future Perfect

  41. How Do Verbs Show Time? • For things happening now, we use the present tense of a verb; for something that has already happened, we use the past tense; and for something that will happen later, we use the future tense.

  42. Verbs Show Time • I happy. • I happy. • I happy. Today am Yesterday was Tomorrow will be

  43. Commonly Used Tenses • Present • Past • Future • Present Perfect • Past Perfect • Future Perfect • I look • You looked • He will look • She has looked • I had looked • I will have looked

  44. Adding “d” or “ed” • To make some verbs show past tense we add “d” or “ed to the end of the word. These are called “Regular Verbs” • tasted looked • appeared remained • seemed smelled turned

  45. Irregular Verbs • Verbs that change their spellings to show tense (or time)are called irregular verbs. • We will use the verb “to go.” The word “go” changes its spelling from “go,” to “went,” to “gone.”

  46. Irregular Verb Tenses • Present • Past • Future • Present Perfect • Past Perfect • Future Perfect • I go • He went • They will go • We have gone • I had gone • I will have gone
