    Indeed, the two verbs are can and tell. Interestingly, in English you do not use a infinitive after the "can".

    I don't know what the question is, but say:
    Please tell me how I can (or should) ask my question.

    Question Re: Which word is the VERB in...

    Hi Red5,
    What's the point asking to find one if there are two? If this is a kind of English humour I'm too thick to get it. All at sea.

    Well, that way a person has two chances to get it right.

    It's a good question. Only Tdol really knows why he picked that sentence.

    (Learners--do you know what "all at sea" means?)
