    VERBS w/o S endings

    Does anyone know the rule for why some verbs, depending upon the pronoun preceding it, do or dont take an S??

    As in:

    I sit
    You sit
    They sit
    We sit
    She sits
    He sits

    Thanks/carol

    In the simple present, the third person singualr (he/she/it) takes the -s, except for modal verbs (can/must/may, etc).
