Understanding Verb

The Verb is an action word. It describes the action of the noun. It also shows the time of action. Any main sentence is constructed with  

    1. Subject
    2. Predicate – Verb + Complement/Object
    3. Object
    4. Complement.
1. The Subject is the noun part of the sentence and the ‘doer’ of the action.

E.g. Sita sings a song.

2. The Predicate shows the action of noun with relation to the object or complement.

E.g. Sita sings a song.

3. The Object is also a noun which shows what is being done.

E.g. Sita sings a song.

4. The Complement completes the sentence and also gives additional information about it.

Sita sings a song to the audience.

Important Verbs: There are four kinds of verb which are needed to construct a sentence.

1. Main verb: No sentence can be framed without a main verb.

E.g. Rama is a boy

2. Auxiliary verb: Auxiliary verb is mainly used in Continuous and Perfect tenses.

E.g. a. The  teacher  is      teaching   a   lesson.

3. Transitive Verb: The verb which has an object in a sentence is called a transitive verb.

E.g. 1.  Rama ate the food.

4. Intransitive Verb: Mostly intransitive verbs will not have an object. But they may have a complement.

E.g. 1. Birds fly – No object / No complement
