Today’s comic is Family Circus.
“That’s weird. ‘VERB” is a noun.” – Billy looking up what “verb” means.
What is a verb?
Verbs are words that describe an action. The action can be mental or physical.
Ex) running, dancing, thinking, walking, sleeping, eating
What is a noun?
A noun is a person, place, or a thing. The thing can be something real or an idea.
Ex) girl, boy, house, city, the big bang theory
What is going on?
Billy thinks that it is odd that a verb (which describes an action) is a noun (which is a thing). The word verb is a noun because the idea of a verb is a thing. Verbs themselves are actions but a verb the idea is a thing.
