An action verb shows activity, it shows the subject doing something: to run, to dance, eat, climb, etc, Jerry ran for the bus. Mary eats lunch in the cafeteria. A the linking verb shows no action, it only shows the state of being of the subject. You can tell a linking verb for "is" or "are" or "was" or "is": David is happy. The twins are cute. We were busy last week.
