A-Z Challenge 2015: L is for Linking Verb

What are Linking Verbs? A linking verb connects the subject with a word that gives information about the subject, such as a condition or relationship. They do not show any action; but, they link the subject with the rest of the sentence.

Examples: 

  • All the children seem satisfied with the bouncy castle.
  • Bob felt sleepy after eating the whole pizza.
  • The cinnamon rolls taste heavenly.
  • Building the house proves difficult for them.
  • Anthony has been a dream the last few weeks.
  • The spectators remained silent after the injury on the field.

      When I was in high school I knew grammar rules but never really got into it. Then, when I started learning Russian, our grammar rules became my best friend. Some of it still boggles my mind.

    Thanks for the reminder that linking verbs don’t have to always be is, are, were, etc., that they can be as descriptive as an adjective! Visiting from A GAL NEEDS…A to Z Challenge
