What are Verbs? There are different types of verbs. Some verbs we experience from day to day. These are action verbs and they may either be in the present or in the past. Look at the pictures below. Other verbs do not show actions; they show state of being. State of being shows that someone or something exists or existed, has or had something, etc. Words such as: is, are, has, have, was, were, be, been, being, are examples of words that show state of being.
