A linking verb connects a subject to a subject complement which identifies or describes the subject, as in the following sentences : The play is Waiting for Godot. In this sentence, the linking verb "is" links the noun phrase "the play" to the identifying phrase "Waiting for Godot," which is called a subject complement. Some of us thought that the play was very good. In this sentence, the verb "was" links the subject complement "very good" to subject "the play." Others thought it became tedious after the first fifteen minutes.
Linking verbs do not express action. Instead, they connect the subject of the verb to additional information about the subject. Look at the examples below: Keila is a shopaholic. Ising isn't something that Keila can do.
