What is a verb? Songs, poems and language teachers throughout history have attempted to explain verbs to us. A verb is an action word, Luv Is a Verb, Everything’s a Verb, where does it end? The concept of verbs is sort of a tricky one to grasp, and then once you do, verbs only get more confusing. But let’s just start with the basics and go from there, shall we?

What are verbs?

Verbs are doing words. A verb can express a physical action, a mental action, or a state of being.
