  9. 9. How to Test for a Linking Verb<br />Sally feels bad.<br />Find the verb of the sentence.<br />Replace the verb with a form of to be (is, are, am, was, were)<br />If the sentence makes sense, you have a linking verb; if it doesn’t, you have an action verb.<br />Sally feels the rough edges of the table.<br />Linking<br />is<br />is<br />Action<br />
  10. 10. Helping Verbs<br />Helping verbs include am, are, is, was, were, be, have, has, had, do, does, did, may, might, must, can, could, shall, should, will, would. A helping verb is used with another verb form, the main verb, to form a phrase that acts as the verb of the sentence.

  17. 17. Verb + -ing<br />When an –ing verb appears in a sentence without a helping verb, it does not act as the verb of the sentence.

  18. 18. Verb + -ing<br />When an –ing verb appears in a sentence without a helping verb, it does not act as the verb of the sentence.
