    Go berserk

    He/she will go berserk when he/she finds out the burglary of the house.
    The word berserk is an adverb here. For me, it affects the verb go, which is a verb.

    My husband says it is an adjective.

    I agree with your husband.


    Concise Oxford English Dictionary 2008 Oxford University Press:
    berserk
    adjective - out of control; wild or frenzied.
    Rover

    Re: Go berserk

    GO functions as a linking verb here.
