    Re: modal verbs

    Hi,

    The basic modals are:

    can, could, may, might, must, ought to, should, would

    Phrasal modals:

    be able to, be going to, be supposed to, used to

    I have probably missed a few.

    ...will, shall

    There are some some that can be modals, but not always, like 'need' and 'dare', and some we hardly ever use, 'gainsay'.
