In a clause, the verb and its subject must both be singular or both be plural (Nichol, n.d.). To make a noun plural, you add “an S”. To make a verb plural, you take away “an S”. Generally, if subject doesn't have “an S”, the verb will. If the subject does have “an S”, the verb won't. Number of a Verb “An intransitive verb has two characteristics. First, it is also an action verb, expressing a doable activity like chase, climb, paint, hunt, eat, clean, wants. Second, unlike a transitive verb, it will not have a direct object receiving the action."
Here are some examples of intransitive verbs:
The lion sleeps.
Sleeps = intransitive verb; no direct object.
The giraffe walks.
Walks = intransitive verb; no direct object. Intransitive Verbs On the next screen you will see a BINGO card with an auxiliary verb in each square. Your mission is to create 5 sentences using an auxiliary verb and main verb of your choice. Try creating the sentences using the wild animals you see! Can you get 5 in a row? Let’s Play Bingo! The main verb states the main action or state of being of the subject in the sentence. To put it simply, the main verb is the part of most of us think of as the action part: eat, prowl, swim, attack. Class What are verbs? Verbs References Answers: Infinitives, Gerund, Participles __________________
The zebra trotting up to the fence hopes that you have an apple or carrot.
The water drained slowly in the pond from the river in the savannah.
Eaten by mosquitoes, we wished that we had made hotel, not campsite, reservations. Gerund as subject:
Traveling on a safari might satisfy your desire for new experiences. (Traveling is the gerund.)
The safari trip might satisfy your desire for new experiences. (The gerund has been removed.)
Gerund as direct object:
The zebras are drinking water from the river. (The gerund is drinking.)
The zebras go to the river. (The gerund has been removed)
Gerund as subject complement:
The lion’s favorite activity is sleeping. (The gerund is sleeping.)
The lion’s favorite food is fresh meat. (The gerund has been removed.)
Gerund as object of preposition:
The cheetah was resting at the hill. (The gerund is resting.)
The cheetah hunted his pray for hours. (The gerund has been removed.) “Gerunds: a verb form, ending in -ing, which acts as a noun."
Example: Running in the wild after dark can be dangerous.
Gerunds are frequently accompanied by other associated words making up a gerund phrase ("running in the jungle after dark").
“The term verbal indicates that a gerund, like the other two kinds of verbals, is based on a verb and therefore expresses action or a state of being. However, since a gerund functions as a noun, it occupies some positions in a sentence that a noun ordinarily would, for example: subject, direct object, subject complement, and object of preposition." Gerunds Let's try another!
Directions: Write the correct form of the verb shown in parentheses to complete each sentence.

Tense= Let’s Practice The imperative mood is also common. It is used to give orders or to make requests. It is identical in form to the second person indicative.
Pick up those branches.
Close the window. Active voice verbs are used when the subject is acting in a sentence.
The zebra stomped on the rocks.
Stomped is an active verb because it allows the subject to undertake an action. Active Voice The voice of a verb may be either “active” or “passive.” Voice of Verbs Simple Present:
Describes actions or situations that are now taking place and are habitually or generally true.
Antelopes jump over the stream.
Describes activity in progress, something not finished, or something continuing.
The turtle is swimming in the lake.
Describes single or repeated actions that began in the past and lead up to and include the present.
The alligators have lived inside their habitat for several years.
Present Perfect Progressive:
Indicates action that began in the past, continues to the present, and may continue into the future.
The monkeys have been scratching that bark for several days. Present Tense A transitive verb has two characteristics. First, it is an action verb, “expressing a doable activity" like chase, climb, paint, hunt, eat, clean, wants etc. Second, it must have a direct object, something or someone who receives the action of the verb.
Here are some examples of transitive verbs:
The lion kicked the lizard under the rock.
Kicked = transitive verb; the lizard = direct object.
The monkey held her baby.
Held = transitive verb; baby = direct object. An auxiliary verb (also called helping) gives additional meaning to the main verb following it; helping verbs have do not have meaning on their own. They are essential for the grammatical formation of a sentence, but they do not tell us very much alone. They “help" the main verb (which has the real meaning). Some examples include: can, should, will and do. Class Group: Verbs 3
