Action Verbs

Hello everyone!

bird-teacher-owl-bird

Action verbs express action and are the most common verbs.

 

Action verbs need s at the end with third-person, singular subjects.

  • He eats bread.
  • She walks to the station.
  • It floats on the sea.

Negative sentences need do not, does not, or did not.

  • I do not eat bread.
  • He does not eat bread.
  • You did not walk to the station.
  • It does not float on the sea.

Interrogative sentences begin with do, does, or did.

  • Do you eat bread?
  • Does he eat bread?
  • Does she walk to the station?
  • Did they finish it?

Do not can be shortened to don’t, does not to doesn’t, and did not to didn’t.

  • I don’t eat bread.
  • She doesn’t walk to the station.
  • It doesn’t float on the sea.
  • They didn’t finish it.
