Tutoring Help For Understanding the Main Types of Verbs

The truth is that many students struggle with grammar because they lack a strong foundation of basic language arts concepts. One of the most important concepts that needs to be mastered in order to better understand other grammar structures is the different parts of speech. That is why today at The Tutoring Center in Orlando, we want to focus on verbs and explain some of the main types of verbs.

Understanding Verbs

Verbs are easy to remember because we know that a verb is something you do. A verb stands for an action or something that is done, such as run, laugh, listen, leave, drive, etc. However, verbs can also be used to change the tense of the main verb, in which case they are considered auxiliary verbs (did, will, would, etc.) Example: She would run every morning.
  • Regular verbs. The majority of verbs are considered regular verbs. When a verb that is in past tense or past participle ends in ¨-ed¨ it is considered a regular verb. Examples: laugh, is a regular verb because its past tense is ¨laughed.¨  The verb ¨listen¨ is regular because when written in past tense it is  ¨listened.¨
  • Irregular verbs. When writing irregular verbs in past tense or past participle there is no standard formula to follow. In the English language, there are around 250 irregular verbs and most are very common and are memorized. Examples:¨ run¨ becomes ran, ¨leave¨ becomes left, and the verb ¨drive¨ becomes drove, etc.
