|Parts of Speech|
Verb - A verb is a word that tells us what a person, animal or thing is doing. Verbs show action, so they are also called action words. Some
verbs do not show action and indicate existence or state of being like appear, seem etc. Every sentence must have a verb.
Kriyaa – Kriyaa vah shabd hai jo yah bataataa hai kee kartaa (vyakti, vastu yaa jaanawar) kyaa kar rahaa hai. – Jaise - Kapil kelaa khaa rahaa hai (khaanaa kriyaa hai jo bataataa hai kee kapil kyaa kar rahaa hai). Hindi meiN verb ke ant meiN ‘naa’ aataa hai Jaise likhanaa, paDhanaa, kudanaa ityaadee. Kuchh kriyaa shabdoN meiN action nahee hotaa apitu kisee 'sthiti' yaa 'honaa' aadi ke baare meiN bataate hai – Jaise mahsoos honaa, astitve honaa aadee.
Examples: write, speak, read, fight, learn, come, go, seem, feel, etc.
He speaks very slow - (action verb – speak)
I learn English daily – (action verb – learn)
She resembles her mother – (state verb – resembles)
It appears that you have lost your ring – (state verb – appears, action verb – lost)
A verb which requires an object in a sentence to convey complete meaning is a Transitive Verb. In the absence of object, subject does not convey complete meaning.
Vah kriyaa jise vaakya meiN poore arth ko vyakt karane ke liye object kee jaroorat hotee hai, Transitive verb kahalaatee hai.
Kanika wrote "______".
Without an object the verb “wrote" does not give complete meaning. If we mention object in the sentence –Kanita wrote a letter or her name – makes it more meaningful.
(1)She is eating an apple. (2) He has understood the lesson. (3) He bought a new mobile phone for his mother. (4) He kicked the football. (5) Avyan has completed his homework. (6) Kanika is giving her toys to Vartika.
A verb which does not require an object in a sentence is an Intransitive verb.
Intransitive verb can give complete meaning without an object in sentence for it.
Vah kriyaa jise vaakya meiN poore arth ko vyakt karane ke liye object kee jaroorat nahee paDatee, Intransitive verb kahalaatee hai.
Examples: (1) Kanika is not weeping. (2) She is laughing. (3) It has rained. (4) The Sun shines. (5) Birds chirp in the morning. (6) It is burning.

Mukhya Kriyaa - Vaakya ke pramukh arth mukhya verb bataate hain – Jaise – ronaa, banaanaa, kharidnaa, pooraa karanaa, ityaadee.
Helping Verbs –

the tense of the sentence.
