Lesson 9 - Parts of Speech - Verbs

In sentences that are questions, the verb phrase is often separated by another word.

Instructions: Find the verb phrases in these sentences. Be sure to watch for another word separating the helping verb from the main verb.

1. Have you been driving long?

2. Where was the car parked?

3. Can I be of assistance?

1. have been driving

2. was parked

3. can be

The words separating the verb phrases are nouns and pronouns. This is very common in sentences that are questions. The first two verbs are action verbs, and the last verb is a state of being verb.
