What is a verb? The verb is a word that expresses some actions, feelings, or existence and also something about the subjects. Following examples are helping you for your better understanding them.

1) He runs. (action verb)
2) They fly kites. (action verb)
3) I feel sorry for my did. (feeling)
4) Ashoka was a great king. etc (existence)

All the verbs which are expressing above lines are limited by the number and person of their subjects. Therefore, runs, fly, feel and was are called the main verbs or finite verbs.

Hence, verbs are divided in two parts :-
A) Main verbs also called as lexical verbs.
B) Helping verbs or Auxiliaries verbs.

All verbs we are using in English except the 24 helping verbs are the main verbs. The twenty four helping verbs are called auxiliary verbs.

What are auxiliary verbs? All helping verbs are known as auxiliary verbs. They are of two types. They helped a principal or main verbs to form a Tense, mood or voice. Examples:-
1) I play cricket. Here, play is principal verb.
2) I shall help you. Here, shall auxiliary verb where as play principal verb.
3) She has finished her work. Here, has auxiliary and finished main verbs.
(I) Primary Auxiliary verbs :- There are again divided into three categories:- (a) Be verbs like :- am, is, are, was and were.

(b) Do verbs like as: do, does and did.

(c) To have verbs like:- has, have and had.

(II) Modals :-  Shall, will, should, would, my might, can, could, must, ought to, need, dare and used to.

What are main verbs? Instead of helping verbs, there are many other verbs like:- go, play, dance, sing etc are called main verbs. There are thousands of main verbs. According to their functions and existence in a sentence; they are two types.
