Linking verbs are also known as "copulative verbs", is this the term you were after?

Google has a few contrary definitions, but http://writingtips.wordpress.com/2008/06/20/cop... seems fairly good, and agrees with my vague memories of grammar lessons.

Was the term you were after "copulative verbs"?

Google searches for this don't give consistent answers, but http://writingtips.wordpress.com/2008/06/20/cop... echoes my vague memory of this grammar.
