    • 3 Types - Linking
      • LINKING:
        • Linking verbs hook up the subject (“do”-er) of the sentence to additional information about the sentence. This additional information can be a predicate noun, a predicate adjective, or a prepositional phrase.
        • A linking verb test: substitute form of “be”; if it works, it is functioning as a linking verb.
        • The list shows linking verbs and wanna be’s; some linking verbs can function as an action verb (these are the wanna be’s)
    • Click here for further examples of linking verbs: “always” and “ wanna be’s ” Linking verb lists: “always” and “wanna be’s ” be will were was are is seem am become (forms of be): These words are ALWAYS linking verbs: taste turn sound look smell grow remain feel prove appear These words are “WANNA BE’S” that can function as action or linking verbs, depending on their use in the sentence
    • Helping verbs

    • Examples
      • Go to the New York Times website and pick any article you would like. Cut and paste that article into Word, then mark 3 action, 3 linking, and 3 helping verbs (using 3 colors or “highlighter” in Word is easiest; be sure to create a “key” for Ms. I to use in understanding your choices). Be sure to use an article long enough to have 9 total examples. Print off, write your name on it, & turn in to the basket.
