    Question confused??

    I'm having a problem with the "English" english related to a course I'm taking!?
    In the sentences " Amy must be doing well. I've heard nothing but good things about her."
    Am I correct in assuming that 'MUST' is MODAL & 'BE' is a primary aux. verb as contained in the first sentence?......and that the HAVE of 'I've' is also a primary aux. verb in the second?

    ( I must confess that I'm starting to have subliminal pain in my knuckles, brought on by eight years of nuns with rulers.......HELP, stop the pain!)
    signed .....B.

    Did you just want the answers to the questions about the parts of speech, or are you having difficulty understanding the sentiment of the statements? I am not sure that I can answer regarding modality and auxiliary verbs as I am not a teacher.
