In this lesson, we will take a closer look at main verb and helping verb. The main verb is also called a sentence or a basic verb. This statement means the existence of the verb, which is extremely important in the sentence. The main verbs can be used alone or in conjunction with an helping verb, also called the helping verb. Helping verbs generally make aid and help as in their name.
Helping verbs are verbs that help the main verb in a sentence by extending its meaning. They can also add detail to how time is conveyed in a sentence. As a result, helping verbs are used to create the most complicated verb tenses in English: the progressive and the perfect aspects.
Together the helping verb and the main verb form a verb phrase. A helping verb always stands in front of a main verb. More than one helping verb can be used in a sentence.
