Linking verbs connect subjects with words that tell more about the subject. What is weird is that for a verb, these particular parts of speech often do not stress or show any action at all. Instead their purpose is to link the subject to the remainder of the sentence. They help readers understand the state of being. The most common linking verb is "to be". You want to make sure to not overuse these parts of speech. They will naturally be used in all your written pieces, but if they are used excessively it will draw away from your main thoughts and the primary purpose of your work. This selection of printable worksheets will help you locate and use these parts of speech in your own sentence writing.
