Hi guys,

I assume the following sentence is grammatically correct. If so, I would like to know why there are three verbs in one sentence: "makes", "feel", and "know"? Isn't there suppose to be only one verb in a sentence? Please elaborate your answer.

It makes me feel like I don't know any Chinese.

Thank you.

The sentence is fine. You can have several verbs in a sentence, with various roles, one usually being the main verb.

Hi,

Isn't there supposed to be only one verb in a sentence? You need to forget this idea.

For a start, consider straightforward sentences like

Tom arrived and Mary left.

I brushed my teeth, washed my face and combed my hair.

Best wishes, Clive

Makes = Principal verb of the sentence. Null subject.
Feel = Principal verb of the simple declarative averbial clause of the sentence's principal verb.
Know = Principal verb of the simple declarative averbial clause nested in the subordinate clause of "feel" and introduced by a subordinating conjunction.
