Linking? or Action? Verb

This presents an easy song for learning the linking verbs. Three basic guidelines are given for deciding whether a sense verb (look, feel, taste, sound, appear, etc.) is a linking verb. First, is it on the linking verb list? Second, does it link the subject to a word in the predicate? Three, does the sentence have nearly the same meaning if the sense verb is replaced with is or are?
