Verb Tenses Examples
You know that verbs are words that express an action-physical or mental-or a state of being.
Verbs also have tense, or the time when the action is occurring.
There are three main verb tenses-past, present, and future.
For regular verbs in the English language, the present tense is formed simply by using the verb.
This rule is true except for forming the third person singular (he, she it). For the 3rd person singular present tense, you add an "s":
To form the past tense for regular verbs in the English language, you add an "ed".
To form the future tense for regular verbs in the English language, you add "will" or "shall" in front of the verb.
Below are some examples of the three verb tenses for regular verbs.
