TThey are INCOMPLETE VERBS. ›T›They don’t have all the tenses. ›T›There is not past participle, so there is not passive. ›T›They use other verbs to complete the tenses. - CAN is completed with BE ABLE TO “They can play the piano.” “They will be able to play the piano in the future.” - MUST is completed with HAVE TO “You must come early.” “You had to come early yesterday.”
TThey don’t have –s in third person singular of the present simple “ He can open the door” “ She must come early”
TThey are followed by an infinitive without 'to' in most cases. BUT: NEED takes 'to' when expressing absence of obligation in the negative: You do not need to stay if you don't want to. OUGHT TO i s a special case and you must learn it like that. It expresses convenience. Ex: You ought to study more more if you want to pass the exam.
TThey don’t need auxiliary verb in the interrogative or negative form “ Can I help you?” “ We shouldn’t go to the toilet”
