    In these cases, the word THINK is used as a noun or as a verb?

    *She always says what she thinks.

    *She thinks it brings her good luck.

    Are they used as nouns or verbs? I thought that in the first sentence it was used as an abstract noun, and in the second as a stative verb, but I have doubts now.

    It is a verb in both examples.
