Lexical verbs (also known as main verbs) are verbs that provides information (used to express an action or state of being). The opposite of lexical verbs are auxiliary verbs, which provide grammatical structure (designed to aid grammar instead of provide information).

to give you examples: lexical verbs with meanings on their own: cook, work, see, tell, etc.

auxiliaries without meanings on their own: do (in present simple), have (in present perfect), had (in past perfect)
