All of the villagers were fascinated with new technology. were is the linking verb and is linking fascinated. Is fascinated an adjective?

    I suppose you could say that.

    But I don't see a linking verb as such. I see "were" being used as an auxiliary verb (helping verb) with the main verb "to fascinate" -- the helping verb and the -ing ending make the verb in the past tense, passive mood.
