    What confuses you? Let us know.

    In the meantime, if you do a search on-line under the term "linking verb", you'll find that there are a great deal of sites that not only explain what they are, they provide lists, too.

    Also, what exactly is an indirect/direct object? I have an example: Give Baily a dog. And in it I am told that Baily is the indirect object! I'm confused...
