  5. 5. Verb Tense and Irregular Verbs<br />
  6. 6. Verb Tense<br />The tense of a verb shows the time that the action or condition takes place. <br />The three basic tenses in English are present, past, and future.<br />
  7. 7. Present Tense<br />The present tense shows an action or condition taking place at the time the writer is writing. The present tense can also show an action.<br />Bruce has a big kitchen.<br />He cooks every evening.<br />
  8. 8. Past Tense<br />The past tense shows something that began and ended in the past. To form the past tense of most verbs, use the –edform of the verb.<br />Last week, Bruce cooked for his friends and family.<br />
  9. 9. Future Tense<br />The future tense shows something that will take place or will probably take place. To form the future tense, use will or be going to and the present tense of the verb.<br />I will learn the periodic table next week.<br />These studies are going to make a difference in my grade.<br />
  10. 10. Stay in the Same Tense!<br />As a general rule, stay with the tense you begin with at the start of a paragraph unless the time you are talking about changes. <br />Avoid shifting from one tense to another for no reason, because these shifts may confuse your readers.<br />
  11. 11. Activity 8: Correct Awkward Shifts in Verb Tense<br />Edit the following paragraph to correct unnecessary shifts in verb tense. The first sentence in the paragraph is correct.<br />Manny collects antique bottles. He will buy bottles if he liked them, but he prefers to find them in the ground. He will find bottles everywhere. However, he has the best luck at construction sites on old farmland. Often, bottles appeared on the surface after a good rain. He will use special tools for excavating bottles, including a set of brushes. He did not want to break the bottles as he removed them from the ground. After finding a new bottle, Manny will add it to his display case.<br />
  12. 12. Irregular Verbs<br />Irregular verbs are verbs whose past tense and past participles do not end in –edbut are formed in a variety of other ways. As a result, they are often misused or misspelled. <br />Review the forms of irregular verbs so you won’t make errors.<br />
