THREE KINDS OF VERBS

      Action verbs
      Linking verbs
Helping or auxiliary verbs
                   VERBS

Action verbs express an action seen or unseen.
      There are two kinds of action verbs:

           Action Transitive AV-TR
                      and
           Action Intransitive AV-IN
                     VERBS

An action transitive is a verb that takes a direct
                      object.

An action intransitive verb does not take a direct
                      object.

 This will become more clear when you study
                direct objects.
                    VERBS

Action verbs express an action seen or unseen.

Linking verbs (state-of-being verbs) connect the
 subject with a noun, pronoun, or adective that
            identifies or describes it.

 Helping or auxiliary verbs join with an action
 verb or a linking verb to form a verb phrase
                    VERBS

Action verbs express an action seen or unseen.

Linking verbs (state-of-being verbs) connect the
 subject with a noun, pronoun, or adective that
            identifies or describes it.

 Helping or auxiliary verbs join with an action
 verb or a linking verb to form a verb phrase
