  3. Intransitive Verbs
  4. Regular Verbs
  5. Irregular Verbs
  6. Modal verbs
  7. Phrasal Verbs
  8. Auxiliary verbs or Helping verbs
  9. Linking Verbs
  10. Stative Verbs or State Verbs

1. Main Verb or Action Verbs:

The main verb can express physical or mental action. It describes what the subject of a sentence is doing physically or mentally. So action verbs or Main verbs are used to express action.

Action verbs express a particular action at any time to show action. That may be discussing with something or someone.

Action verbs are give, eat, walk etc. Possession verbs are have, own etc.

E.g.

  • I hear the train coming.
  • The sun shines.
  • The monkey jumps.
  • Call me when you’re finished with class.

Action verbs can be either transitive or intransitive. Let's see,
i) Transitive Verbs (Vt)
ii) Transitive verbs (Vi)

2. Transitive Verbs:

It requires one or more objects. Transitive verbs can be classified by the number of objects they require.

A transitive verb always has a noun that receives the action of the verb. It is called the direct object.

Transitive verbs are action verbs that can attach directly to a noun.

Transitive verbs are action verbs that always express doable activities. A verb needs an object to make complete sense is called a transitive verb.

E.g.

  • The teacher made the question paper.
  • Sweaty cut the cake.

3. Intransitive Verbs:

An intransitive verb has two characteristics. Let’s see one after other.

First one is an action verb. It is expressing doable activities like arrive, go, lie, sneeze, sit, die, etc. Intransitive verbs are action verbs that always express doable activities.

No direct object follows an intransitive verb.

The second one is unlike a transitive verb. It will not have a direct object receiving the action. Intransitive verbs are action verbs, cannot attach directly to a noun. It requires the help of a preposition.

For example, as in walk to the store, comply with the regulations, proceed with the inquiry.

E.g.

  • Mr. Becker jogs every day.
  • The wicked hunter was hiding.
  • Priya looks very beautiful.
  • Mr. John speaks loudly.
  • The ship sank rapidly.
  • The department store opens at six o’clock.

6. Modal verbs:

Modal verbs are also known as auxiliary verbs that are used to express abilities, possibilities, permissions, and obligations.

Be, do, have are similar to the auxiliary verbs because they help the main verb in a sentence. They are different because they each have a special meaning.

Here may means maybe, can't means impossible or unable, and should is asking for advice.

Modal verbs are must, shall, will, should, would, can, could, may, and might.

Model auxiliary verb are Ought to, need, dare.

Ought to – Compulsory/expected
Need - Emergency
Dare - Shows capability/ Capacity.

The verb can be served as either main verb or auxiliary verb. When it acts as the main verb, it typically couples a grammatical subject with an adjective.

E.g.
The book is on the table

7. Phrasal Verbs

Phrasal verbs aren’t single words. Phrasal verbs are combinations of words. Those are used together to take on a different meaning.

Phrasal verbs are ask out, ask around, add up to, back up, break down, cut off, look forward to etc

8. Auxiliary Verb or Helping Verb

Auxiliary verbs are used to change the tenses and make questions. The auxiliary verb is used together with the main verb. It helps the main verb of a sentence. So we can conclude, auxiliary verbs are also known as helping verbs.

Auxiliary verb be is used to indicate the continuous and the passive voice.

Auxiliary verbs express necessity or possibility.

The primary auxiliary verbs in English are be, do, have.

The modal auxiliary verbs are can, could, may, might, must, shall, should, will, and would.

Let’s see auxiliary verb categories.

Have: have, has, and had
Do: do, does, did
Be forms: am, is, are, was, were, be, been,

We are learning about helping verbs. (Are: helping verb; learning: main verb)
We are in the Green House Club. (Are: helping verb)
You should complete the work by tomorrow. (Should: helping verb; complete: main verb)

9. Linking Verbs:

Linking verbs connect a noun (or pronoun) to words that describe it, expressing a state of being or a condition. State of being verbs is also known as linking verbs.

Linking verbs are non be verbs that link a grammatical subject to an adjective.

This noun or adjective is called the subject complement. Linking verbs explain a link between the subject of the sentence and a noun or adjective.

  • He looks out of sorts.
  • The flowers are bright.
  • Diamond is the hardest substance.
  • I feel scared.
