    Default Re: what is the parts of speech is "is"

    The word is is the present-tense third-person singular form of the verb to be.

    1st person present: I am we are
    " " past: I was we were

    2nd person present: you are
    " " past: you were
    (note: English does not have 2nd person plural)

    3rd person present: he/she/it is they are
    " " past: he/she/it was they were
