Question and answer
Q: what follows a linking or action verb
A: a linking verb is normally followed by either a predicate noun or a predicate adjective. example: He is my father. IS (linking verb) father (predicate noun). [ Thus the Sentence pattern is Subject (He) - Linking Verb (father) - Predicate Noun (father) or S-LV-PN. another example: She seems tired. SEEMS (linking verb) TIRED (predicate adjective). Thus the sentence pattern is: Subject (She) -
Linking Verb (seems) - Predicate Adjective (tired) or S-LV-PA. It would be good to note that both predicate noun and predicate adjective are considered Subjective Complements (C) So the sentence patterns for both may appear: S-LV-C. On the other hand, an action verb may be followed by a direct object. example: John threw a ball . THREW (action verb) BALL (direct object). Thus the sentence pattern is Subject (John) - Transitive Verb (threw) - Direct Object (ball) simply put: S-TV-DO ]
