A “verb” is a word used to describe what someone or something is doing.
In other words, a “verb” describes an action or state of being. When you combine a noun with a verb, you can already build simple sentences. In a sentence, the noun becomes the subject. Every sentence needs a subject and a verb that tells us what the subject (the noun) does. Verbs are always placed after the subject.
Peter eats. (Peter = subject | eats = verb)
The dogs are barking. (The dogs = subject | barking = verb)
I think. (I = subject | think = verb)
There are “Action Verbs” and “State-Of-Being Verbs.”
“Action Verbs” describe an action of someone or something.
The cat sleeps.
The boy is reading a book.
The woman sings a song.
“State-Of-Being Verbs” describe the state or condition of the sentence’s subject.
I feel tired.
She likes coffee.
Peter is hungry.
