    BELIEVE verb question

    What type of verb is the verb "believe"?

    Example usage:

    I believe the music sounded old.

    I=pronoun
    believe = common verb?
    the=determiner
    music=noun
    sounded=linking verb?
    old=adjective

    Is the verb "believe" the same type of verb as the verb "realize"?

    Re: BELIEVE verb question

    It is similar. I'm not sure what you mean by 'common verb', though. Iyt is the main verb in the sentence.
