Lucy the Valiant Posted February 1, 2012 Share Posted February 1, 2012 (If I am, you can tell me.) So we're doing Growing With Grammar 3 this year (I'm on an endless quest for the perfect grammar program), and we started chapter 3 - the difference between action verbs and linking verbs. My problem comes with the definition of "action verbs we cannot see" - and a couple of the sample sentences actually use LINKING verbs. ARGH! This is my pet peeve with grammar programs! "That smells fishy." (smells = linking verb, and fishy is a predicate adjective, right? am I reading this wrong?) Same for "That sounds like Mary's voice." ARGH. Is there an English grammar program that teaches right-off-the-bat the difference between transitive, intransitive, and linking verbs?
