FOCUS QUESTION: WHAT IS THE PAST PARTICIPLE? MAY 16, 2012
Review of Present Participles Find the present participles in this selection from Anne Frank’s diary. Remember that there are 2 parts to the verb phrase. Bep is going to get a hold of notebooks, especially journals and ledgers, useful for my bookkeeping sister! Margot is thinking about taking a course in calligraphy; I’ve advised her to go ahead and do it.
What is the past participle? The past participle, like the past tense form, ends in –ed. Unlike the past form, the past participle always follows a form of the verb have, which acts as a helping verb. (has/had/have) squeaked (has/had/have) yodeled (has/had/have) babbled Reminder: What is a helping verb? to have- has, have, had to be- is, am, are Reminder: A helping verb + main verb is a VERB PHRASE!
