For our last article, we learnt about Sentences and its types and 5 types of Nouns namely, Common Noun, Proper Noun, Concrete Noun, Abstract Noun and Collective Noun.
There are in total, 8 types of Nouns. So, apart from the ones covered previously, the remaining include as follows:
E.g. Table, Pen, House, Cart
E.g. Wood, Milk, Air, Joy.
E.g. Daughter-in-law, Milkmaid, Rainfall, Credit Card.
Now, advancing onto Verbs,
Verbs(வினைச்சொற்கள்) are simply action words that describe what the subject is doing. Verbs are crucial parts of a sentence without which, the meaning of the Sentence is lost. Even the simplest of the sentences contain a verb. E.g. She dances. Sometimes, a verb itself can be a sentence, with the subject ‘You’ implied. E.g. Sing! and Drive!
Normally, verbs are action words but there are also verbs that are non-action words which express a state of being, emotion, possession, sense or opinion. E.g. love, agree, am, have
Therefore, to recognise a verb in the sentence, there are three methods.
E.g. We went to the Mall; You write neatly in your notebook.
Here, both ‘went’ and ‘write’ are located next to the subject ‘We’ and ‘You’ respectively.
E.g. Mary hears a ringing in her ear; Call me when you’re finished with the class.
Here, the word ‘hears’ as well as ‘call’ answers the question Can I hear? And Can I call?
E.g. Divya eats her dinner quickly; They thought of all the prizes.
Here, eating and thinking is happening. Hence, they are verbs.
