    Linking verbs

    I would like to know if these linking verbs are a new category in grammar. I have never come across them by this name.
    Were they formerly called by another name? Verbs of perseption? might that be?
    Thanks.

    Re: Linking verbs

    An English linking verb is also called a "copula" or a "copulative." The 14 commonest are the "current" copulas: "appear," "be," "feel," "look," "seem," "smell," "sound," "taste"; the "resulting" copulas are "become," "get," "go," "grow," "prove," and "turn."
