In order to make an action verb, you need a subject: the one who is doing the action.

Okay, so for the word "sound". I would say, "Tell the soldiers to sound the alarm"?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
It could be, although I can't guarantee it. Sound would be one of the action verbs, but the main one would be "tell" the subject being you. A way to make "sound" a definite action verb would be like "The soldiers will sound the alarm."
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yes. English is very complicated, so if you don't understand, I can't blame you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do you understand it then? :D
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Years of getting it wrong kinda taught me how to get it right. :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha, cool :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have some more, can you help me?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Sure.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay! The word is "smell". I have, The cat smelled the man's boots.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yep. That's the action verb.
anonymous
  • anonymous
:D the word is,feel. my sentence is " if you feel badly, you have a problem with your sense of touch".
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
This one seems kinda tricky, but I think you have it right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay :) what about this one. the word is taste. I have - Miranda tasted the spicy chicken curry.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
this is a stupid question but, do you know linking verbs as well?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Indeed. They connect the subject to the action.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Or adjective.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay! I have some more questions then. one second :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, for the word "look" again, I have - That looks nice. is that a linking verb sentence?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Indeed. Looks can be an action verb, but can also be a linking verb. It provides the connection between the subject and the adjective.
anonymous
  • anonymous
:) okay, what about the word "sound" I have the sentence - That sound is quite annoying. is that a linking verb sentence?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
It's a linking verb, but it's not sound. The sound is the subject, and the adjective is quite annoying. That means that the linking verb is "is."
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, how do I make the linking verb sound?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
You can do it by replacing is with sounds. "That sounds quite annoying."
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about the word "smell" I have - Roses smell good.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Think of it this way: Are the roses performing any action?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't think so.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Then it's a linking verb
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh :O
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about the word "feel" my sentence is - I feel good when the boss compliments me.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Let's see if you can do this one on your own. What do you think this one is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think it is a linking verb sentence :/
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Indeed
anonymous
  • anonymous
:D
anonymous
  • anonymous
what about the word "taste" I have - The cinnamon rolls taste amazing!
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Ideas?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think it's a linking verb sentence!
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yep
anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, okay. can you tell me if I pick the correct one for my sentences?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
:D okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have //// Plastic bags --------- keep sandwiches fresh. I think the helping verb is "can"!
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
I agree
anonymous
  • anonymous
That bear -------- eaten almost everything. I think it's has.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
It can be has or had. Either way, I'd think you're correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay! They ----- already tasted the vegetable soup. I think it is have.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Hmm.. I think this one is had. "Have" is more in the present tense, and this sentence must be in the past because of "tasted."
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh
anonymous
  • anonymous
The butter ----- melting in the bowl. I think it's is.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
:) the baby ------ been irritable all day. I think it's has.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Joshua ====== want to arrive earlier than usual. may or might?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
I think it could be either.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I will go with may!
anonymous
  • anonymous
You -===--- look in the drawer. can or could?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or should
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Either could be right, but can would have a better chance of being the correct answer because "look" is in present tense.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
Amanda ----- wearing two different socks. I think it's is.
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
Dad -------- work overtime today. I think it's is!
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Hm....that doesn't sound right. This sounds like it needs to be set in the future.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, never mind I miss read the sentence sorry
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
That's okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
I thought it was dad ---- working lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
it could be - may or could?
KyanTheDoodle
  • KyanTheDoodle
Do you have to pick between them? Both of them are correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
um, it says that I have to fill in the blank with appropriate helping verbs, I'm not sure if I can pick more than one answer :(
