Helping and linking verbs Helping verbs are verbs that are used in conjunction with main verbs to express shades of time and mood.Examples include~ will, shall, may, might, can, could, must, ought to, should, etc.Sentence~ I will be playing hockey tomorrow at two oclock. Helping verbs plus a main verb will make a verb phrase. Linking verbs are verbs that connect a subject and its complement. They are often in to be form and are sometimes related to the five senses. Some reflect a state of being ( appear, seem, become, grow, turn, prove, remain) Sentence~ Lila is a shopaholic. Is is connecting the subject, lila, to the object, shopaholic.

Active and passive voice/ verbs Active voice is where the subject of the sentence preforms the action expressed in the verb. It is also the most common form of writing sentences.

Phrasal and Causative Verbs Phrasals are verbs, another word or phrase and usually a preposition. The end result is a brand new verb. This kind of verb is typically hard for non- native speakers to learn because it comes from causal talk and sayings. The word that joins with a verb in this form (often the preposition) is called the Particle.Examples~ The kids were sitting around, waitingCausative verbs are designated the action necessary to cause another action to happen.
