G7: Check Verb Tense Forms
The English verb has five principal parts.

These principal parts are used in forming English verb tenses.

The principal parts of some English verbs are given in the next chart.

When parts of the verb BE (am, is, are, was, were, be, been, being) are used to form active verb tenses, they are followed by a present participle as, for example, in the continuous tenses.

Sometimes the verb BE is used to form passive sentences. When this happens, it is followed by a past participle.

Topic 4
I am leaving here now.
Be + Present Participle

I have been living here for a long time.
Be + Present Participle
When parts of the verb HAVE (have, has, had, having) are used to form verb tenses, they are followed by a past participle as, for example, in the perfect tenses.

I have lived here for a long time.
HAVE + Past Participle

I have been living here for a long time.
HAVE + Past participle

The –ing form of the verb can NEVER function as the finite verb of a clause.

Incorrect: George having had his paper finished for a few days.
Correction: George has had his paper finished for a few days.
Incorrect: Bill feels that we making too much noise.
Correction: Bill feels that we are making too much noise.

The TOEFL tests your understanding of the use of verb parts to form English verb tenses by:
1. leaving out verb parts or adding extra verb parts to tense forms,
2. combining verb parts incorrectly.
3. using the –ING form of verbs when finite verb forms are needed; or
4. forming irregular verbs incorrectly.
