    The action of a sentence.

    I'll try to explain myself with examples:

    Sentence without a verb:

    - A beautiful slim woman with long blonde hair.

    NOTE: There's no action in this sentence, it's only a description of a person.

    Sentence with a verb:

    - A beautiful slim woman with long blonde hair was walking along the deserted street.

    NOTE: Here the verb "walk" explains what does the subject do in the sentence; it isn't only a description, there's also action, something happens.
