    Is going to see .... is it a verb phrase?

    Hello Friends

    Somebody is going to see her.

    What is "is going to see"? Is it all a verb and "her" an object?

    Or is "is going" a verb and "to see" is something else??

    Logically, "is going" is similar to "will" and therefore "is going to see" should be one unite; i.e. a verb.

    What do you think?

    If the meaning is like 'will', then it's all one verb to me.
