Let's look at some sentences to review what we have learned. Remember that verbs either show action or state of being. Using helping verbs, we make verb phrases. Verb phrases may be separated by other words. Verb phrases follow a definite order and change form.
Instructions: Find the verb phrases and tell what kind of verbs they are.
1. I can understand your concern.
2. Is Mrs. Johanson going with you?
3. The rooms cannot be held any longer.
4. I haven't seen him for an hour.
