WHAT IS VERB ?
A word that shows an action, state or an event. It is an essential
part of a sentence and it is also known as the soul of English
language.

KINDS OF VERB
• Regular Verb
• Irregular Verb
• Linking Verb
• Transitive Verb
• Intransitive Verb
• Auxiliary Verb
REGULAR VERB

A verb that's past (2 nd form) and past participle (3rd form) is formed
by adding “d” or “ed” this is called as regular verb.

Example:
1st Form 2nd Form 3rd Form
Walk Walked Walked
Talk Talked Talked
IRREGULAR VERBS
In contrast, the simple past and past participle of irregular verbs can
end in a variety of ways, with absolutely no consistent pattern.

Example:
1st Form 2nd Form 3rd Form
Shot Shut Shut
Drink Drank Drunk
Break Broke Broken
LINKING VERB
A verb that links or joins the subject with another word in the
sentence is called as linking verb.

Example:

"I am glad it is Friday". (Here the linking verb "am" connects the subject (I) to the state of
being glad).

"Laura is excited about her new bike." (Here "is" links the subject Laura to the emotional
state of excitement).

"My birds are hungry." (The word "are" identifies that the birds currently exist in a physical
state of hunger.)
TRANSITIVE VERB
A verb that needs an object to complete its meaning in a sentence
is called transitive verb

Example:
Malinda Sang a solo (solo is the object)
INTRANSITIVE VERB
A verb that doesn’t need any object to complete its meaning in
a sentence is called as intransitive verb

Example:
Malinda sang softly (there is no object. Softly is an adverb)

by adding “d” or “ed” this is called as regular verb.
