    Re: the verb to do

    'I believe' is a simple statement, without emotion, unless you speak in a special tone of your voice.
    'I do believe', with the auxiliary verb 'do' used, is a statement of emphasis put on the verb 'believe'. This statement is definitely stronger than the plain, emotionless version.

    Re: the verb to do

    Welcome to the forum. Please note my corrections to your post:

    Start every sentence with a capital letter and end it with the correct punctuation mark.

    I have omitted all unnecessary words from your post.

    Re: the verb to do

    I think both have the same meaning but people have different thoughts.

    Re: the verb to do

    If they have the same meaning, what is "do" used for?

    Please read post #2.

    Please remember the forum rule that non-teachers should state that they are not teachers when they post a response in this forum.

    Re: the verb to do

    Mawes, if you have trouble remembering to add "not a teacher" just add it to all your posts.

    Re: the verb to do

    How do I add it to all of my post? Or should I just write it as my signature?
