Verb Usage – Part One Principal Parts of Verbs Grade Seven
Principal Parts of Verbs There are four principal parts of verbs: 1. Present part 2. Present participle 3. Past part 4. Past participle
Present Part The present part of a verb shows an action that is currently happening. A present part of a verb may end in “s.” Ex. do, play, plan, think
Present Participle Part A present participle is formed by adding “ing” to the present form of the verb. A present participle shows an action that continues. A present participle must have a linking verb before it to be used correctly in a sentence. Ex. doing, playing, planning, thinking
Past Part A past part of a verb may add the letters “ed” to the present part of the verb. If the verb can do this, it is called a regular verb. If the verb can not be formed by adding “ed,” then it is called an irregular verb. It has to change somehow to form the past part. “Played” and “planned” are regular verbs in the past part. “Did” and “thought” are irregular verbs in the past part.
Past Participle Part A past participle is formed when “have,” “has,” or “had” is placed before the verb part. If the verb is regular, the past part will follow the “h” helping verb. If the verb is irregular, the main verb will change. Ex. have, has, or had done Ex. have, has, or had played Ex. have, has, or had planned Ex. have, has, or had thought
