Lesson 12 - Parts of Speech - Verbs

View lesson on  Daily Grammar

Verb phrases with two or more helping verbs always keep a definite order.  Most helping verbs can combine with other helping verbs but will not combine with all of them.

     Examples of good combinations: 
        has been said 
        will be said
        could have been said
        may have said 
        had been said

Instructions: Arrange the following helping verbs with the word in parentheses into a verb phrase. One of the helping verbs will not combine and must be left out.

     was, have, may (gone) = may have gone
      - "was" will not combine in this group

1. am, will, being (fired)

2. been, could, does, have (learning)

3. might, do, have, been (sleeping)

4. must, were, be (discovered)

5. be, has, should (sold)

--For answers scroll down.


1. am being fired

2. could have been learning

3. might have been sleeping

4. must be discovered

5. should be sold
