What are Infinitive Verbs? Grammar Review
A verb tense tells you when something happens. We need verbs to build a complete sentence. Verbs come in three tenses; “Present, Past, Future”. Verbs can be broken down into “Regular or Irregular verbs”. There are countless regular verbs in English. There are less than 200 irregular verbs in everyday use. Irregular verbs consist of three forms: “Infinitive, Past simple, Past Participle“. Regular verbs also consist of three forms but, “Past simple and Past Participle“ are formed by adding “ed” to an infinitive verb. The verb “To be” is the most common verb in English both as a full verb and auxiliary verb. We use infinitive verbs to ask and answer questions. An infinitive verb is the basic form of a verb.
