This is not a quiz - I don't the answer to this question.

In the sentence "The Minnesota Vikings rule", what part of speech if "rule"?

It doesn't seem to be a verb, or adjective, and I know it's not an adverb or noun. So what would it fall under?

See, that was my original thinking, but it seemed not to fit the definition. The act of "ruling" isn't really an action, it's like a state of being. At least in this context. Slang is weird.

You would be surprised what constitutes a verb. Like 'can' in 'I can go to the bathroom.' And 'am' in 'I am the lizard king'.

actually, that makes sense - thanks to spanish, grammar is much clearer. so i guess i can see it...but it still sounds odd.

On a side note, you are the only one who consistently comments on my posts. Gratze. :)

It does not matter what part of speech it is. The sentence is incorrect. The sentence should read, "The San Francisco 49ers rule." And that I believe is a verb.

I also think it's a verb.
