In the sentence: My plans for vacation include redecorating my room. I know the gerund phrase is redecorating my room, but is include a action verb or linking verb? I need to be able to tell if the gerund phrase is used as a direct object or predicate noun. Thanks.

asked by Brandi
  1. The gerund phrase is a direct object. The verb "include" is not a linking verb.
