                                      LINKING VERBS :
Some state-of-being verbs are
linking verbs.  Linking verbs connect, or
link, the subject with a word in the predicate. 
Words that follow linking verbs tell something about the subject are
either nouns or adjectives.  They are
called Predicate words because they appear in the predicate.
Example: 
1. Mrs. Bogle is our landlady.  (Is links the noun landlady to the  subject Mrs. Bogle).
    2. My hands
are tired. (Are links the adjective tired to the subject hands).
 Here is a list of frequently used linking
verbs:
Am    is       be      are     were   was    seem  become  
smell    appear
Sound   feel   
taste    look
Do
not confuse nouns following linking verbs with direct objects of verbs.  Direct objects follow action verbs, not
linking verbs.
