VERB: verb

Definition

A verb is a member of the syntactic class of words that typically signal events and actions, can constitute a minimal predicate in a clause, and govern the number and types of other constituents which may occur in the clause.

Examples

If a word is further analyzed into morphemes, verb-yielding derivational morphemes are tagged as VERB. These include verb-elaborating suffixes (V→V) that attach to verbal roots and yield verbal bases and verbalizing suffixes (N→V) that attach to nominal roots and yield verbal bases.
