VERBS What Is a Verb? A verb is the part of speech that expresses action or state of being. Examples: There are two types of verbs: action verbs (ran, jumped) and linking verbs (is, was). A linking verb is also called a verb of being. A transitive verb has an object, while an intransitive verb does not have an object. A verb phrase is made up of a verb and one or more helping verbs. Two verbs joined by a conjunction are called a compound verb. Choosing when the action of the sentence takes place will determine the tense of the verb. Choose the present tense of the verb if the action in the sentence is occurring now. Choose the past tense or the past participle of the verb if the action in the sentence happened in the past. The past tense or past participle of an irregular verb is not formed with - ed or -d. Try This! 1] Choose the action verb in this sentence. When he was just 13 years old, Mike won the race. a] was b] years c] won d] race 2] This sentence contains a helping verb.
