Linking Verb or Action Verb?






To inquire about my classes, or for a trial lesson, email me at acewld@gmail.com




Linking Verb means an action word that connects the topic (Subject) to a Noun, to a Pronoun, or to an Adjective.

The most common Linking Verbs are the Be-Verbs in their many forms, Am, Is, Are, Was, Was, Were, Been, and Being.

 Let’s take a look at the following examples:

 Mark is smart.

The Be-Verb IS connects or links the Subject (Mark) to the Adjective Smart.

I am a model. The Be-Verb am connects the subject I to the noun model.

The soldiers are brave and strong. The Be-Verb are connects the subject (Soldiers) to the Adjective strong.

There are other linking verbs, however, that are popularly used. In this post, I would like to discuss these first five linking verbs, because sometimes, they function as a linking verb and sometimes, they also function as an action verb, depending on their position in the sentence.

An Action Verb, as the name suggests, is a verb that is performed or done by the subject.

Here are the Top Five Verbs that can function both as Linking Verbs and Action Verbs.

Feel

Look

Smell

Sound

Taste

 

This is how each of them is used as a Linking Verb.

Jennifer feels confident that she will get a good score in her exam.

This birthday cake looks so yummy. Did you bake it or did you buy it?

The pancake smells burned. Maybe you did not flip it on time.

Your singing voice sounds awful. Please stop singing now.

After failing to reach the summit of Mt. Everest two times, Mr. Jack finally succeeded in climbing the said mountain. This achievement tastes so sweet to him.

 

As Action Verbs

I smelled the cheese and I knew right away that it had gone bad.

Could you please sound the bell? (Hit it and make it produce a sound.)

次の例を見てみましょう。

Mark is smart.

 Be-Verb ISは、主語(マク)を形容詞スマトに接またはリンクします。

I am a model.

Be-Verb amは、主語Iを名詞モデルに接します。

The soldiers are brave and strong.

Be-Verbは、主語(兵士)を形容詞の者に接します。

 ただし、一般的に使用されている他のリンク動詞があります。この投稿では、これらの最初の5つのリンク動詞について明します。これは、文中の位置によっては、リンク動詞として機能する場合と、アクション動詞として機能する場合があるためです。

アクション動詞は、その名前が示すように、主語によって行または行される動詞です。

リンク動詞とアクション動詞の方として機能できる上位5つの動詞を次に示します。
