What are the verbs in these sentences? I just want to check my work.
Gasping, Matty called for his gift to come. There was no sense of how to direct it. He became aware, suddenly, that he had been chosen for this.
Thanks in advance!

These are my answers:
had been chosen
I'm not sure about "to come" and "to direct". Are the ones that I listed right? Did I miss any?
Thanks Ms. Sue!

All except gasping are correct. There are only the last four verbs you listed.
In this sentence, "gasping" is a present participle used as an adjective. "To come" and "to direct" are infinitives used as adjectives in these sentences.

Oh, okay! Thanks!
Just curious- What words do "to come" and "to direct" describe?
- English Grammar: Verbs - Ms. Sue, Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 6:24pm
To come describes gift. To direct describes how.
