Session 4

Link verbs are verbs that can be followed by adjectives - to give more information about the subject of the verb. Verbs like look, sound and seem are all examples, and they're often used in conversation like this:

I'm buying a new shed.

Wow, that sounds great!

1) These verbs can be used with a subject, or more informally, without a subject:

It smells lovely, Finn.

Smells lovely, Finn.

2) We can use them both to respond to what people say, and to agree to do things, like this:

Want to see some jazz on Friday?

Sounds good.

3) They can also function as normal verbs:

She looked angry (followed by adjective) = she had an angry expression

She looked angrily at him (followed by adverb) = she looked in an angry way
