What is the action verb and linking verb in this sentence:
The day was warm and sunny.

  • English -

    The linking verb is "are." There is no action verb. There is no action in that sentence!

  • English -

    I thought "was" is considered a verb? (are verbs and actions the same?)

  • English -

    Some verbs show action -- like jump, think, run, believe, drive, chase. Other verbs express state of being -- as the underlined verbs in these sentences.

    I am a teacher.
    Joe is cool.
    My sisters are Brenda and Teresa.
    The day was warm and sunny.

  • English -

    Oh ok-- I get it now!
