When a verb has one or more helping verbs, this is called a verb phrase. Note: a helping verb does not have to be right next to the main verb in the sentence because an adverb(not, only, & ly words) may separate the helping verbs.

Example:

Eddie will surely choose the largest slice of pie.

Caroline could not have eaten all those cookies.
