Verbs are necessary component of all sentences. Verbs have two important functions: Some verbs put subjects into motion while other verbs help to clarify the subjects in meaningful ways.

The important thing to remember is that every subject in a sentence must have a verb.

Otherwise, you will have written fragment, a major writing error. Here we are going to look at the function of a verb in a sentence.

Example:

My English teacher-subject

Smiled-verb
