Grammar for Dyslexics 2 (verb)

Jun 28, 2013 | Literacy

Verbs express action (walk, read, swim) or a state of being (to be, have, like)

EVERY sentence has a VERB!
Verbs vary, depending on the:

-PERSON who performs the action (I am, you are…)
or for a third person, ‘s’ is added (he comes).

-TENSE: Verbs in the Present Continuous have an
-ing added (I am running)
Verbs in the Past Tense have an -ed added
Verbs in the Future need a helping verb: I will go.

Unfortunately 70 % of the verbs we use are not regular verbs (walked, played), but irregular verbs, which means they change in the 3 forms:
Present – Past – Past Participle
go          went         gone
do          did            done
have      had          had
bring     brought   brought
rise        rose          risen….
and the list goes on and on…
These irregular verbs are difficult for dyslexics.
