Grammar Point:
With linking verbs, we can say, (subject) + (linking verb)+ (adjective). For example,
It tastes good/It looks strange/It feels nice/It sounds awesome/It smells different
The above verbs can be called linking verbs, because they can link the subject to an adjective.
You can turn the linking verb and adjective into a new adjective. For example:
The food tastes good = It is good tasting food

The garbage smells weird = It ____________________________________________

The crowd sounds excited = It ___________________________________________
The man looks strange = He _____________________________________________
The food looks nasty = It _________________________________________________
The car looks old = It ___________________________________________________
The food tastes rotten = It _________________________________________________
The boy looks creepy = He _________________________________________________
The woman looks beautiful = She ____________________________________________
Sometimes this function is used without linking verbs, for example:
The job pays well = It is a well/high-paying job
He works hard = he is a hard-working man
She drinks a lot = she is a heavy-drinking woman
She smokes a lot = she ______________________________________
The labor is hard: It is ______-breaking _________________________
He is a good salesman: He is a ______-talking salesman
