    Which sentence is right or wrong? You have not asked a specific question.

    Re: HELPING VERB USING RULES

    NOT A TEACHER


    Hello, Gordham Sharma:

    You have asked an excellent question. I hope that the links help you.

    Here are a few points that I hope you find helpful:

    1. Another name for "auxiliary verb" is "helping verb" because it helps the main verb.

    a. Mr. X is a teacher. ("Is" is the main verb.)

    b. Mr. X is eating. (This time "is" is an auxiliary verb. That is, if I said only "Mr. X eating," you would get the idea, but

    I can "help" the main verb ("eating") by saying "is" or "was" or "will be."

    c. I study English. ("study" is the main verb.)

    i. Note how I can change the meaning by adding an auxiliary verb:

    (a) I will study English.
    (b) I can study English.
    (c) I must study English.

    2. A very important function of auxiliary verbs is to make questions and the negative.

    a. "Tom loves grammar." We need an auxiliary to make a question:

    Does Tom love grammar?
    Should Tom love grammar?

    b. And for the negative:

    I do not know French.
    He did not understand.

    *****

    Well, I think that you get the idea. If you have a question about a sentence that confuses you, just ask here in the "Ask a Teacher" forum. Many people are eager to help you.


    HAVE A NICE DAY!

    *One source I consulted was The Oxford Dictionary of English Grammar (1994) by Ms. Sylvia Chalker and Mr. Edmund Weiner.
