Verbs are a part of speech that has used to describe an action, state, or occurrence, and forming the main part of the predicate of a sentence, such as hear, become, happen. Examples of action verbs- sit, stand, talk, walk Examples of linking verbs- is, are, was, were Examples of helping verbs- will, would, might, may For most verbs, you simply add an –ed to go from present tense to past tense. For irregular verbs, the word changes to another word to form the past tense. Regular verbs just add –ed Walk-walked   talk-talked       kick-kicked Irregular verbs change the word Teach-taught               say-said           buy-bought      catch-caught You would not say teached, sayed, buyed, or catched. Verbs are an important part of reading, writing, and speaking because sentences must have a verb in order to be complete.

An example of proper nouns are Mrs. Colbert, Ruby Young, and Olive Garden. The key is to remember to capitalize. You must also learn singular and plural nouns.
