Lesson 10 - Parts of Speech - Verbs

Sometimes verb phrases are separated by words called adverbs (we will learn more about adverbs in later lessons). Adverbs are often used with verbs; however, they are not considered part of the verb phrase.

Instructions: Find the verb phrases in the following sentences. Are the verbs action verbs or state of being verbs?

1. You have not helped your father today.

2. I will soon be home.

3. The child had suddenly choked on the food. 

--For answers scroll down.


1. have helped - action verbs

2. will be - state of being verbs

3. had choked - action verbs

All of our lessons are available on our website in our lesson archive at
