    What kind of verb it is?

    "Some of the people who live in that old house on the hill look pretty weird to me.
    Is the word "look" the verb of this sentence? What kind of verb is it? Are there any other verbs like this? Please give me some examples.
    (Please correct my English if I have made any mistakes)

    Re: What kind of verb it is?

    'Live' is the verb in the relative clause, 'look' the verb in the main clause.

    'Look' functions here as a link/linking/copular verb. Other similar verbs include appear, feel, smell, sound, seem, taste.
