Hi, can anyone help answer my question, if so that would be great.
My question is if a noun is a person, place, or thing, and a verb is not a thing, then why is it that we explain a verb as telling an action. In the dictionary action is referred to as a thing/noun. This seems to say that a verb tells an action which is a thing. I though verbs and nouns were totally seperate. I thought a noun is a thing and a verb tells what to do.
