So I had a little semantics argument about English verbs, where the other side claimed, let me quote:
They are one in the same, every action is a verb, every verb is an action.
I disagree, but not being a native English speaker, unlike my opponent, I'm having problems catching up. I could disprove the second part easily using verbs "like", "have" and "want".
But as of the first part, an action that is not a verb... I know one:
action It's an action actually, because you "Take action." But is there anything else?
