Can you please help me find the action, linking, auxiliary and transitive verbs in this paragraph?
"Every November, bands from across the country visit New York City for the big Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even on cold days when winds or light rain might scare away spectators, the parade is on schedule. The crowd lines the parade route and will stay untill the last float has driven out of sight. As bands strut down Broadway, drum majors pound their drums, members of color guards rhythmically wave their flags, and baton twirlers toss their batons into the air and catch them as they twirl downward to the ground. Meanwhile, giant, colorful cartoon balloons like Betty Boop, Spiderman, and Bart Simpson, and other favorite characters are overhead. For young children, the parade remains an eventful experience and becomes a fond memory in their lives."
As I told you before, if you CAPITALIZE the words you think are verbs, we'll be be glad to help you.
To get you started:
"Every November, bands from across the country VISIT (TR) New York City for the big Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even on cold days when winds or light rain MIGHT (AUX) SCARE (TR) away spectators, the parade IS (L) on schedule.
