So whats an action verb? An action verb is a verb that describes an action, It can be things like running, jumping etc

5. anonymous

I am struggling with What a Linking Verb is What a Action Verb is What a Auxiliary Verb is I have studied it for the past few days and still get it confused

6. anonymous

Ok so it is the verb that has the most meaning to it in a sentence? "The Standard Platform Team "Operates" Operates: Action Correct?

7. shreehari499

Now linking verb ( The word linking is self explanatory) : A linking verb is a verb that links the subject of the sentence to information about that subject. They do not describe any action.

8. shreehari499

Exactly

9. shreehari499

I'll now give you an example of linking verb

10. anonymous

A Linking verb is the verb that connects the sentence correct? "Neither humans nor computers (Can Be) used to operate them" Can Be: Linking Verb?

The child $$\color{red}{\Huge\text{will be}}$$ tall five years from now.

12. shreehari499

you are correct

13. anonymous

Awesome. One more. Auxiliary.

14. shreehari499

An auxiliary verb is a verb that adds functional or grammatical meaning to the clause in which it appears...for example I $$\color{blue}{\Huge\text{am}}$$ leaving

15. shreehari499

Here the main verb is $$\color{yellow}{\Huge\text{Leaving}}$$

16. anonymous

Would "Seem" be a auxiliary verb?

17. shreehari499

Yes it can be, for example It seems to be leaving

18. shreehari499

Now i will give you some sentences, tell me which verb it is. Ok?

19. anonymous

Ok

The Wind: Auxiliary Blows: Action Constantly: Linking ?

22. shreehari499

I am having a connectivity issue here..can you wait for a few min?

23. anonymous

Yes

24. shreehari499

Ok..now auxillary verbs are only of four types , namely Be, Have, Will and Do.

25. anonymous

So there is no auxiliary verb in that one?

26. shreehari499

you can use it passively or actively

27. shreehari499

hese verbs are also called Helping Verbs, as they ‘help’ the main verb to denote the actions of the subject. They help in making compound tenses of the main verb and also help in making negative statements, questions and passive voice statements.

28. shreehari499

*these

So is the word "IS" a Linking verb?

30. anonymous
