The words that tell us about an action or words that show that some work is being done are called action words, doing words or Verbs. Dance, paint, smile or read, they all show that some action is being done. Verbs are an important part of a sentence.
QUICK CONCEPT REVIEW
When you find yourself confused whether a sentence, has an action word or not, look at all words in the given sentence and ask yourself "is this something !that o person or an object can do"? For example: A boy is reading a book. Here the word reading is a verb or an action word. It suggests that an action is being done. If a verb is not used in a sentence the sentence seems to be incomplete.
For example when I say "I will school".
Does it have any meaning?
Now let us add' go 'to it, and write it as "I will go to school"
We find that just by adding an action word to the whole sentence we are able to add meaning to a sentence.
There are two forms of verbs. Doing words and Being Words. Doing words are words that tell us about some action taking place. For example. Jumping, Pulling.
Being verbs do not denote any action or doing, but they link the subject to the verb. The most common linking verb is to be
To Be: The various forms of it being, am, is, are, were, was, being, will be, has been.
There are many rules to use being words. We use 'am' with T We always use 'is' with 'he, 'she and 'it'. 'Is' is used with single words. 'Are is used with 'We', 'they and you'.
