The verb “to be” connects the subject to the adjective and noun group describing the subject; therefore the verb “to be” does not imply a concrete action. In such cases, the verb to be is described as a “linking verb.” The adjective or noun group in such cases are known as “complement”s. Linking verbs other than verb “to be” include “appear, become, seem, feel, taste, sound, smell, remain, grow”.
