Lesson 12

Parts of Speech - Verbs

 

Verb phrases with two or more helping verbs always keep a definite order. Most helping verbs can combine with other helping verbs but will not combine with all of them. The examples below show good combinations.

 

has been said, will be said, could have been said, may have said, had been said

 

Instructions: Arrange the following helping verbs with the word in parentheses into a verb phrase. One of the helping verbs will not combine and must be left out.

 

Example: was, have, may (gone) = may have gone - was will not combine in this group.

 

1. am, will, being (fired)

 

2. been, could, does, have (learning)

 

3. might, do, have, been (sleeping)

 

4. must, were, be (discovered)

 

5. be, has, should (sold)
