1.14 Verb Tense - Present, Past, and Future

PAST TENSE

The past tense of many verbs is formed by adding ed.
Examples:
remember + ed = remembered
climb + ed = climbed

If a verb ends in e, drop e before adding ed.
Examples:
phone - phoned
arrive - arrived

If a verb ends in y, change the y to i before adding ed.
Examples:
carry - carried
try - tried

If a verb ends in a short vowel followed by a single consonant, double the final consonant.
Examples:
trip- tripped
pop - popped

PRESENT TENSE

The present tense verb tells what is happening right now. To form present-tense verbs, use the plain verbs or use is or are before the verb and adding ing to the verb.
Examples:
We eat. We are eating.
He servers. He is serving.

Note: However 'ing' is also used for present, past, and future progressive tense.
Present Progressive: using am/is/are with verb form ending in -ing. Example: is examining
Past Progressive: using was/were with the verb form ending in -ing. Example: was examining
Future Progressive: using will be or shall be with the verb form ending in -ing. Example: will be examining or shall be examined

FUTURE TENSE

The future tense verb tells about things that will happen in the future. To form the future-tense verb, use will/shall before the verb.
Examples:
We will be eating.
Tomorrow we will walk to school.
When you use will, you may also have to add a helping verb and the ending ing.
Tomorrow we will be walking to school.
