Mar 31st – Family Circus: The Noun Verb

Hello everyone!

Today’s comic is Family Circus.

Comic Breakdown

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.
