99.99% of the time, yes.
But there are exceptions, mostly in spoken English. You could see something at the clouds and don´t identify it, then you ask someone close to you: A plane? a drone?
The waiter is coming, then you point to menu and ask your friend? water or wine?
Anyway, in your mind there´s an implicit question, in it there will be a verb.
Is it a plane or a drone?
What are you having? water or wine?
And, on second thoughts.
I answered that thinking of English (since this is an English Forum), in your question you didn´t let us know what language, though.
Anyway, I will hazard the guess that in other languages the same happens, perhaps even the Berber language (one of the click-click languages of Khoisan languages). Once verb means movement, action, state.
