Top : VERBS

Articles:
  • Active Voice - If the verb indicates that the subject is the doer of the action, we refer to the sentence as being written in Active Voice.
  • Imperative Mood - The imperative mood gives a command or an appeal. The subject of the verb is understood ("you").
  • Passive Voice - If the verb indicates the subject receives the action, then we refer to the sentence as being written in Passive Voice.
  • Rules for Verb Tenses - The tense of a verb should accurately express the time of the action. If you break this rule, then you confuse the reader as to when the event took place.
  • SHALL and WILL - Conjugation of Shall and Will as Auxiliaries (with Choose).
  • Subjunctive Mood - The subjunctive mood has a special form of the verb; it expresses a wish, conscious choice, or a condition contrary to fact.
  • Verbs - Person and Numbers - Since verbs in some instances change their form as their subjects change in person and number, we can agree that a verb agrees with its subject in person and number.
  • What is a Linking Verb? - When we use a verb to connect the subject of a sentence with a predicate noun, pronoun, or adjective, we call it a "linking verb."
  • What is a Transitive Verb? - A transitive verb is a verb that passes over the action from the doer to something that receives it.
  • What is a Verb? - Words that express action are called verbs. The verb is the grammatical core of every sentence.
