GRAMMAR PRACTICE – REGULAR VERBS

 

Adding the 3rd person singular (he/she/it) to the base form of the verb can alter the spelling in several ways. Typically we just add an –s to the end of the verb. However, if the verb ends in s, ss, sh, ch, x or o, we add an –es. When a verb ends in y after a consonant, the y becomes an i and we add –es.

Most Verbs Verb with s, ss, sh, ch, x or o ending Verb with ending

The spelling and pronunciation of third person singular forms, -(e)s endings, depend upon the sound that comes before it and is determined by a one of three rules.

 

Rule 1: Most verbs simply add a –s to the infinitive:

Laugh → Laughs

Talk  → Talks

Stop  → Stops

This spelling is pronounced /s/

 

Rule 2: Verbs that end in a consonant + y, the y becomes an and add -es:

Cry  → Cries

Hurry  → Hurries

Reply  → Replies

However, should the verb end in a vowel + only the s is added to the end:

Play → Plays

Enjoy  → Enjoys

Stay  → Stays

Sounds that are produced by the vibration of the vocal chords are called voiced sounds. These are all the vowels and the sounds: b/ g / j (as in judge) / l / m / n / r /, voiced th (as in bathe), / v / ng (as in bang) / zh sound (as in measure) / z (as in buzz).

Most third person singular forms that end in these sounds have the s ending, the sounds /zh/, /z/, and /j/ are the exceptions and end in –es.

Receive  → Receives

Learn  → Learns

Call  → Calls

Regardless of the spelling, any –(e)s ending that falls under this rule is pronounced /z/

 

Rule 3: We add –es when the verb ends in  the sounds -s, -z, -ch, -sh, -j or  -x. Except for the exceptions from Rule 2 (-z and –j), these are voiceless or unvoiced sounds. These are sounds that are produced with no vibration of the vocal chords.

Miss  → Misses

Wash  → Washes

Buzz  → Buzzes

The spelling in this particular case does two things. Firstly it makes the pronunciation /Iz/ and secondly it produces a separate syllable unlike the last two rules which only added a sound.

Fix (1 syllable)  → Fixes (2 syllables)

Push (1 syllable)  → Pushes (2 syllables)

Exercise (3 syllables)  → Exercises (4 syllables)

Spelling exceptions to these rules are :

Have  → Has

Go  → Goes

Do  → Does

 

When spelling using the verb –ing there are a few things to make note of. Typically –ing is merely added to the end of the verb. However if the verb ends in e, we remove it before adding the –ing. Likewise with verbs ending in ie, but in this case we change the ie to a y. Also, if the last syllable of a word is consonant – vowel – consonant and is stressed, before adding –ing we double the last letter.

Most Verbs Verb with e ending Verb with ie ending Verb with c-v-c + stress end syllable

Questions

When we ask a question that is answered Yes or No we use the auxiliary verbs, Do and Does. We use does to make questions in the third person and we use do for the others. In forming a sentence with this present simple form, we can use this formula:

Auxiliary Subject Verb (base form) Rest of sentence
Do I/You/We/They teach English?
Does He/She/It teach in Spain?

 

When replying to such questions is the positive we use do or does (in the third person). In the negative we use usually use the contraction don’t or doesn’t (in the third person).

Form Subject To do Rest of sentence
No I/You/We/They don’t teach English
No He/She/It doesn’t teach English

 

Form Subject To do Rest of sentence
Yes I/You/We/They do teach in Spain
Yes He/She/It does teach in Spain
