Verbs are action words, like shout, jump, run, and eat.
Verbs are one of the two main parts of a sentence, along with nouns. You need a noun and a verb to make a complete sentence.
Action verbs like run, scream, and eat are easily identifiable.
There are non-action verbs, like know, think, and feel, which describe states of being, emotion, or senses. Non-action verbs can be more difficult to identify.
