My problem has to do with linking verbs. I know the obvious linking verbs: forms of "be", is,etc. But I don't know if words such as "during", "a chance that". I am very confused. Thanks for your help.

The words you've listed are not verbs, but you are right that there are linking verbs other than the form of the verb "to be."
and others can be used as linking verbs.
