    Do you think maybe "should" is a verbal? (I'm not terribly sure)

    Okay. I think speak wouldn't be only because it is used more as a verb than an adjective/adverb I think

    We think the verbal is "Speak" (or "to speak") but which type of verbal do you think it is?

    A verbal is a word that originally is a verb, but now it's changed to or being used as some other part of speech. For example: I like skiing. <or> I like to ski. "Skiing" and "to ski" come from a verb, but now they are functioning as nouns (just like in "I like pizza", the noun is pizza.) Skiing is a gerund (because it has +ing) and "To ski" is an infinitive (because it has "to.")

    Oh okay that makes a lot of sense! So "to speak" is a gerund verbal, right?
