  1. Verbs show action or state of being.

    Linking verbs (state of being verbs) link the subject with its synonym or an adjective in the predicate.

    Examples:
    She IS a great teacher.
    This SEEMS difficult.

    Action verbs show action.

    Examples:
    The girls WERE JUMPING rope.
    I THINK you are right.
    We WENT to Grand Canyon.

    Adverbs describe verbs, adjectives and other adverbs. They tell when, where, why, how, and to what extent.

    Examples:
    He USUALLY comes home about four o'clock.
    The skaters moved QUICKLY.
    I've NEVER heard of that movie.
