State of being verbs, also known as linking verbs, are a type of verb that connect the subject of a sentence to a subject complement, which can be a noun, pronoun, or adjective. Instead of showing action, state of being verbs express a state of existence, condition, or identity. They help to describe or identify the subject rather than show what the subject is doing.
The most common state of being verb in English is “to be” in its various forms:
- am (first person singular)
- is (third person singular)
- are (second person singular and plural, and third person plural)
- was (past tense, singular)
- were (past tense, plural)
- will be (future tense)
Here are some examples of state of being verbs in sentences:
- She is a teacher. (connecting “She” to the subject complement “teacher”)
- They were tired after the long hike. (connecting “They” to the subject complement “tired”)
- I am excited about the trip. (connecting “I” to the subject complement “excited”)
- The cake was delicious. (connecting “The cake” to the subject complement “delicious”)
State of being verbs are essential for constructing sentences that describe or attribute qualities, conditions, or characteristics to the subject.
