- FRONT: verb a word that shows action (eat, run, do, defenestrate, originate, drool, go, unzip) or describes a state of being. These linking verbs just are or seem to be or become. They taste good, feel great & will smell if they don't get a shower. BACK: daily grammaticism: Verbs are the egomaniacs of grammar. If they don't get a little action in every sentence, they act all passive. And any noun that dares to disagree with Mr. Verb will find itself in a diagram for disaster. Such behavior masks a profound identity crisis: a verb is really a noun. That is some deep grammar, man.
