       As we know that a sentence is a group of words which, when they are written down, begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop, question mark, or exclamation mark. A complete sentence has at least a subject and a main verb to state (declare) a complete thought. So, most sentences contain a subject and a verb. (Also read : The Function of Imperative Sentence)

       And in this occasion, we’d like to discuss about VERB, in this case we are going to discuss about Definition and Example of Verb. Let’s go to the topic:

Definition of Verb

       A Verb is the action word in a sentence that describe what the subject is doing. Along with noun, verb is the main part of a sentence or phrase, telling a story about what is taking place. In fact, without a verb, full thoughts can’t be properly conveyed, and even the simplest sentences, such as Maria sings, have one. Actually, a verb can be a sentence by itself, with the subject, in most case you, implied, such as, Sing! and Drive! (Also read other article at : Dark Vision Consequence)

       When learning the rules of grammar, school-children are often taught that verbs are “doing” words, meaning they signify the part of the sentence which explains the action taking place: He ran away, she eats chocolate cake on Sundays, the horses gallop across the fields. Ran, eats and gallop are the ‘action’ parts of those sentences, thus they are the verbs. However, it can be confusing because not all verbs are easily identifiable as action: I know your name, Jack thought about it, we considered several applications. These are non-action verbs, i.e. those that describe a state of being, emotion, possession, sense or opinion. Other non-action verbs include love, agree, feel, am, and have.
