I would look for hours and hours, but I was never able to find my house.
so what make the word look an action verb? how do you make it an action?
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"?
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."
Yes. English is very complicated, so if you don't understand, I can't blame you.
how do you understand it then? :D
Years of getting it wrong kinda taught me how to get it right. :D
haha, cool :D
I have some more, can you help me?
okay! The word is "smell". I have, The cat smelled the man's boots.
Yep. That's the action verb.
:D the word is,feel. my sentence is " if you feel badly, you have a problem with your sense of touch".
This one seems kinda tricky, but I think you have it right.
okay :) what about this one. the word is taste. I have - Miranda tasted the spicy chicken curry.
this is a stupid question but, do you know linking verbs as well?
Indeed. They connect the subject to the action.
okay! I have some more questions then. one second :D
okay, for the word "look" again, I have - That looks nice. is that a linking verb sentence?
Indeed. Looks can be an action verb, but can also be a linking verb. It provides the connection between the subject and the adjective.
:) okay, what about the word "sound" I have the sentence - That sound is quite annoying. is that a linking verb sentence?
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."
oh, how do I make the linking verb sound?
You can do it by replacing is with sounds. "That sounds quite annoying."
what about the word "smell" I have - Roses smell good.
Think of it this way: Are the roses performing any action?
I don't think so.
Then it's a linking verb
what about the word "feel" my sentence is - I feel good when the boss compliments me.
Let's see if you can do this one on your own. What do you think this one is?
I think it is a linking verb sentence :/
what about the word "taste" I have - The cinnamon rolls taste amazing!
I think it's a linking verb sentence!
do you know helping verbs?
oh, okay. can you tell me if I pick the correct one for my sentences?
I have //// Plastic bags --------- keep sandwiches fresh. I think the helping verb is "can"!
That bear -------- eaten almost everything. I think it's has.
It can be has or had. Either way, I'd think you're correct.
okay! They ----- already tasted the vegetable soup. I think it is have.
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."
The butter ----- melting in the bowl. I think it's is.
:) the baby ------ been irritable all day. I think it's has.
Joshua ====== want to arrive earlier than usual. may or might?
I think it could be either.
I will go with may!
You -===--- look in the drawer. can or could?
Either could be right, but can would have a better chance of being the correct answer because "look" is in present tense.
Amanda ----- wearing two different socks. I think it's is.
Dad -------- work overtime today. I think it's is!
Hm....that doesn't sound right. This sounds like it needs to be set in the future.
oh, never mind I miss read the sentence sorry
I thought it was dad ---- working lol
it could be - may or could?
Do you have to pick between them? Both of them are correct.
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 :(
