Linking Verbs

A linking verb links the subject of a sentence with an adjective or a noun. 

Forms of be, when they stand alone, are always linking verbs. 
        She is a chemical engineer. 
        Today is the first day of camp.
        Ducks and squirrels are our neighbors here!

The verbs seem, appear, look, sound, taste, and feel can also be linking verbs. 
        The students appear excited for their spring concert.
        The lake looks calm at sunrise. 
        The birds sound peaceful in the trees.

Extra Examples:
        1. Today is the first day of camp. 
        2. The lake looks calm at sunrise. 
        3. The birds sound peaceful in the trees. 
        4. Campers feel good after a restful sleep. 
        5. Breakfast is oatmeal and bacon.
        6. The campers appear hungry. 
        7. The food smells great! 
        8. Hot oatmeal tastes delicious. 
        9. The weather feels warm. 
        10. Ducks and squirrels are our neighbors here!

Predicate Nouns and Adjectives

A sentence is made up of a subject and a predicate. 

A predicate noun is a noun that follows a linking verb and renames or identifies the subject.
        The basketball game is tomorrow
        Today is Saturday
        Saturday is our day for errands. 
        These items are the groceries for today. 
        The first thing is apples.

A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb and describes the subject.
        The granola bars are chewy.
        The green ones taste sour
        That type is crunchy.
        They seem perfect for our salad.
        Those apples appear ripe.
