Is a verb an action?
An action verb is a verb that expresses physical or mental action. The action verb tells us what the subject of our clause or sentence is doing-physically or mentally. For example, in the sentence; The chicken strutted across the road, Strutted is the action verb.
Many verbs, such as run, throw, elect, swing, make, and do are actions. Other verbs specify state of being, such as is, are, and seems.
