linking verb

a: Linking verb ~
b: giant "equals" sign

What: "Sometimes, however, linking verbs are used in sentences. These verbs join the subject with the predicate nominative and do not take a direct object. Basically, a linking verb is like a giant "equals" sign. Linking verbs do not show action. They basically link the subject to the second half of the sentence, like an =."

a: Linking verb ~
b: symmetric property in math

What: "Honestly, it does sound a little weird because we're used to hearing "It is me" and "This is her." But a sentence with a linking verb is like the symmetric property in math: If A = B, then B = A. Since there is no action verb, the linking verb functions like an equal sign. So if "She is this," then "This is she." We certainly wouldn't say, "Her is this.""
