Linking Verbs



  • Some verbs do not express action.
  • A linking verb links the subject with a word in the predicate.
  • This word can be a predicate noun, which renames or identifies the subject, or a predicate adjective, which describes the subject.
  • Some common linking verbs are be, seem, feel, appear, become, smell, stay, and taste.

Linking Verbs Examples

  • Luke is a fine cook. His soups taste delicious.
