Tenses and "to be" Verbs
by Shubhasis Chatkhandi
Dear Ola, I have two questions and would be sincerely thankful if answered.
1. We know that Auxiliary verbs ('be', 'have' and 'do') can also act as Main verbs in a sentence.
So, what will be the Present Continuous, Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous forms of the following sentence :
He is sick.2. Why are the verbs 'am', 'is', 'are', 'was' and 'were' called 'be' verbs? Does it mean that the sentence "I am unwell" can be written as "I am to be unwell"?
With warm regards
