Verbs


A verb is a word that indicates:

  • a physical action
  • a mental action
  • a state of being

Every sentence must contain a verb. If a sentence does not have a verb, it is an incomplete sentence.

To find the verb, we ask "what is the action in the sentence?"

Ben is eating chicken.

What is the action?
