Verbs describe actions, states or conditions. Here are some examples:

  • 'Peter is running fast'. The main verb here is 'run': although it is written in the continuous tense
  • 'John loves Mary'. The main verb here is 'love': although it is written in the present simple tense
  • 'The cat broke the bottle of milk'. The main verb here is 'break': although it is written in the past simple tense
  • 'He had seen her before'. The main verb here is 'see': although it is written in the past perfect tense

Try this quiz and get some practice in identifying the main verbs. The verbs won't always be in their dictionary forms. Don't forget: verbs in their dictionary forms have no endings.

For now, just learn the three parts of a verb: 'close-closed-closed'; 'creep-crept-crept'. If the past and past participle both end in -ed, the verbs are called regular verbs; otherwise, they are called irregular verbs: 'creep' is an irregular verb
2.

Bill watching television yesterday.

Bill will watch television yesterday.
