The Verb: The Action Word
It is important to be able to break any sentence down into the core skeleton of meaning. The heart of any sentence is the verb. Any sentence has some sort of action or assertion. The word that tells this action is the verb. Sometimes two or more words are used to communicate one verbal idea. For example - will run or can throw.
