English has lexical verb and functional verb to fill the function of predicate in a clause. Since predicate is a nucleus constituent of a construction, the absence of one kind of verbs triggers the emergence of another. Thus, verb is productively used in English language. Linking verb is one of lexical verbs in English. Syntactically, it is a unique verb since it is a lexical verb—the same as the canonical one—but it can be substituted by copula be. Some experts stated that copula be and linking verb are equivalent. However, recent studies about linking verb focus on the list of the verbs and the structure. There were not many previous studies focusing on the nature of linking verb. Besides, the study of identifying linking verb in syntactic construction was left uncompleted. Therefore, this paper aims at describing the nature of linking verb and identifying linking verb in syntactic construction in order to distinguish it from another type of English lexical verbs.
