It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.

Better definition[edit]

Instead of the current definition

A verb that that links two parts of a sentence, indicating that one part is the property of the other. The part which indicates the property is the nominal part.

I suggest the following definition, based on the one from the English Wikipedia:

A word (which, in some languages may be implicit, or a suffix) used to link the subject of a sentence with its predicate (a subject complement). For example in the sentence "The sea is blue", "is" is a copula.
