  10. 10. Past Verbs Verbs which tell about actions which happened some time ago are past tense verbs. The dog wantedwanted a bone. Wanted is a past tense verb because the action has already happened.

  12. 12. Future Verbs Verbs which tell about actions which are going to happen are future tense verbs. We will awaken at six a.m. Will awakenWill awaken is a future tense verb because the action has not yet happened.
  13. 13. Future tense verbs Future tense verbs use special words to talk about things that will happen: will, going to, shall, aim to, etc. going to start shall email will enjoy
  14. 14. Linking Verbs A linking verb links its subject to a word in the predicate. Linking verbs express a condition or a state of being. The cow is blue.
  15. 15. Linking Verbs  There are nine common linking verbs: am are be being become is seem was were To remember these linking verbs, use this saying: All boys in school work. am be is seem was are being were become
  16. 16. Helping Verbs  A helping verb helps a main verb express action or precise shades of meaning.  The combination of one or more helping verbs is called a verb phrase. Elmer waswas usingusing the computer.

  19. 19. Helping Verbs •Sometimes there is another word which separates the helping verb from the main verb. One common example is "not.” The boy could not find his socks. The helping verb is could and the main verb is find.
  20. 20. Helping Verbs •A sentence may contain up to three helping verbs to the main verb. •An example would be: The dog must have been chasing the cat. The helping verbs are: must, have, and been; the main verb is chasing.
