8 Helping Verbs May Might Must

9 Keep in Mind… Not every sentence will have a helping verb with the main verb. When you see an "ing" verb such as "running", look for a helping verb also. Sometimes there is another word which separates the helping verb from the main verb. Example: "not" as in: The boy could not find his socks. Helping verb: could Main verb: find. A sentence may contain up to three helping verbs to the main verb. Example: The dog must have been chasing the cat. Helping verbs: must, have, and been; main verb: chasing.
