Verbs are an important part of the English language. They are used to communicate actions, events, and states of being. Verbs can be broken down into three categories: action verbs, linking verbs, and helping verbs. Action verbs describe physical or mental activities that take place in a given moment. Examples include run, jump, think, read, write and swim. Linking verbs connect subjects with adjectives or nouns that describe them. Common linking verbs include be (am/is/are), become, seem and appear. Helping verbs like do or have help form different tenses of other main verbs such as making was writing into had written or is running into will have been running Verbs can also be divided by tense which shows when an action takes place in time; past present and future (for example ran vs runs). Depending on the verb conjugation they may also show agreement between subject and verb depending on the number of people involved (for example he runs vs they run). These small changes make a big difference when communicating effectively in English.
