  • Other things to keep in mind:

  • Not every sentence will have a helping verb with the main verb.

  • When you see an "ing" verb such as "running", be on the lookout for a helping verb also.

  • Sometimes there is another word which separates the helping verb from the main verb. One common example is "not", as in: The boy couldn't find his socks. The helping verb is could and the main verb is find.
