CAN YOU PLS TELL ME WHAT ARE VERBS? MY TEACHER DIDNT EXPLAIN AND I HAVE A TEST COMING UP AND I CANT FIND IT IN THE VERBS SECTION OF MY STUDY MATERIAL???
verbs literally mean 'action words'.For example,
- "John has a ball and he plays with it." In this sentence, hasis a verb as it shows posession and plays mean to use it.
- "Let me tell you how it happened." In this sentence the verb is happen as it shows an occurrence.
- "I want to be a pilot." In this sentence be be is a verb as it shows an ambition or existence.
So a verb is a word that shows action,posession,occurence or state of being.
*-has can also be a auxilary verb like "she has been waiting" where has been is not the main verb,waiting is.Thus an auxilary or helping verb is a verb that helps the main verb.
hope this helped
Modals are different from normal verbs:
1: They don't use an 's' for the third person singular.2: They make questions by inversion ('she can go' becomes 'can she go?').3: They are followed directly by the infinitive of another verb (without 'to')
We use 'can' and 'could' to talk about a skill or ability.For example:
- Ican't drive.
We can use verbs such as 'must' or 'should' to say when something is necessary or unnecessary, or to give advice.For example:
- Childrenmust dotheir homework.
- Youshould stopsmoking.
We can use verbs such as 'can', 'could' and 'may' to ask for and give permission. We also use modal verbs to say something is not allowed.For example:
- Can we swimin the lake?
We can use 'will' and 'would' to talk about habits or things we usually do, or did in the past. for example
