    lexical analysis: substitute teach

    when i was speaking to an american, in the conversation, he mentioned, "I substitute teach in high school".
    substitute can be used as verb, noun and adj., but when used in this context, what is the word class of "substitute"?
    thank you so much!

    It's actually the phrase "substitute teach" that is being used as a verb here. It's often shortened to just "sub." ;)
