    Verb help!

    I'm usually okay with labelling verbs but I am struggling to label the word 'utilise'.

    The context is: 'Utilise the features on your photocopier!'

    I know which verbs it isn't but labelling it is proving to be a challenge as I've confused myself slightly.

    Thank you!

    Re: Verb help!

    I'm not entirely with you. It's a verb. It's been used in the imperative. What sort of label are you trying to attach to it? What did you mean by "I know which verbs it isn't"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
