    Re: need help with verbs

    [1] mean, meant; pay, paid
    [2a] "get involved": She is getting involved
    [2b] "on Sale" is not a verb: It is on Sale.
    [3] Plural Nouns: savings, possibilities
    [4a] Continuous Verb: I am saving.
    [4b] "possibilities" is not a verb. It comes from an adjective, possible.
