I have learned linking verb when I was in middle school, which you have reminded me of my learning experience back in the day. It was a great time learning the language in which everyone has wanted to learn. I think learning the basic rules is the fundamental of the English language. Thank you for sharing!

A very common linking verb that gets used a lot in English is "is." Even I had to use it in that sentence  :laugh:. "Is" is a form of the linking verb "be," which kenthoang28 has listed above.

I'll post a new thread for all the forms of "be" and how each one is different. The other forms I'll just list here: "am," "are," "was," and "were."

I have learned linking verb when I was in middle school, which my English teacher would teach us all the grammars and basic sentence structures. I always enjoy learning this kind of grammar because I like learning English, which is one of my favorite languages besides Chinese.
