    Be



    Be is a verb? I hear a lot people say, “ I be, we be or she be”, is not right? I don’t think that is right. Where would you place be?

    Re: Be

    Be is a verb? Yes, it’s a verb. It’s present, indicative, singular: am & are; plural: are; past indicative: was, were; plural: were;past participle: been and present participle: being.I hear a lot people say, “ I be, we be or she be”, is not right? ‘I be’, ‘we be’ and ‘she be’ are the subjunctives of the present indicatives ‘I am’, ‘we are’ and ‘she is’ respectively. I don’t think that is right. Where would you place be? Some examples: Johnny, be good.’ ‘May God be with you.’ ‘Take care, that no mistakes be made. ‘If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be here.’
