What is a verb?


A verb is a part of speech, or a word, that tells what action is taking place within a sentence. Some sentences have only one verb in them. Let's look at an example sentence.

Example: The young woman walked into the room.

In this example, the young woman is performing an action in the sentence. Therefore, the one word and noun "woman" will be highlighted in green.

Example: The young woman walked into the room.

The word "walked" is the action that the young woman is performing; therefore, "walked" is the verb of this sentence. It will be highlighted in red.

Example: The young woman walked into the room.
