What is verb for class 1?

What Is a Verb? | Definition, Types & Examples

A verb is a word that describes what the subject of a sentence is doing. Verbs can indicate (physical or mental) actions, occurrences, and states of being.

Intransitive verbs do not act on someone or something and therefore do not take a direct object.

While an intransitive verb does not take a direct object, it can be used along with an adverb or adverbial phrase (as can a transitive verb).

Examples: Intransitive verbs in a sentence Rita coughed.

Rita coughed loudly .

Rita coughed on me!

Some verbs are ditransitive, meaning they have two objects: a direct object and an indirect object (usually the person for whom the action is being performed).

Example: Direct and indirect object in a sentence Amira reads me a book .

Stative and dynamic verbs

Dynamic verbs (also called action verbs) describe specific, temporary actions or events (e.g., “eat,” “sleep,” “write”).

Examples: Dynamic verbs in a sentence Amy kicks the ball.

Lydia is running to school.

Stative verbs describe a state of being or perception (e.g., “she is,” “it seems,” “they belong”). They can also be used to describe a mental, emotional, or physical state (e.g., “I believe,” “you hear”).

Stative verbs are typically used for a state of being that is general or unchanging, so they can’t be used in the progressive (continuous) tense.

  • Karl believes in himself.
  • Karl is believing in himself.

Linking verbs

A linking verb (also called a copular verb) connects the subject of a sentence with a “subject complement” (i.e., a noun or adjective that describes it). Common linking verbs include the verbs “be,” “seem,” “become,” and “feel.”

Example: Linking verbs in a sentence Fionn is proud.

The pillow feels soft.

Most linking verbs can also be used as action verbs, describing a specific action rather than a state (e.g., “Sofie feels the pillow”).

Auxiliary verbs

Auxiliary verbs (also called helping verbs) include verbs such as “be,” “do,” and “have.” They’re used in combination with another (main) verb to modify its meaning. Auxiliary verbs can be used to indicate tense, mood, and voice. They’re also used to form negative statements when used with words such as “not” and “never.”

Auxiliary verbs must be conjugated for tense and person (e.g., “I am,” “she was”).

Example: Auxiliary verbs I am waiting.

Did you enjoy the meal?

The door was locked.

Alicia has not spoken to me for a week.

Modal verbs

Modal verbs are auxiliary verbs that are used along with another (main) verb to express ability, permission, possibility, necessity, or obligation. The main modal verbs are can, could, may, might, must, ought, shall, should, will, and would. Modal verbs do not change form.

Examples: Modal verbs in a sentence I can read Arabic and Hebrew.

Martin should speak a little louder.

Talia ought to perform at the talent show.

Phrasal verbs

A phrasal verb is a phrase made up of two or more words that acts as an individual verb. Phrasal verbs typically combine a verb with an adverb or preposition to create a meaning independent of the original words. For example, the verb “kick” and the preposition “off” combine to form the phrasal verb “kick off,” which means “begin.”

Example: Phrasal verb I’m going to move out next month.


A gerund is a noun that takes the present participle (“-ing”) form of a verb. Gerunds typically describe the same action as the verb from which they are formed.

Example: Gerund in a sentence Eating fruits and vegetables is good for you.
