    A helping verb, also known as an auxiliary verb, is a verb that accompanies the main verb in a sentence and provides additional information about the main verb’s tense, mood, or voice.

    Some common helping verbs include:

    • Be (am, is, are, was, were, etc.)
    • Have (has, had)
    • Do (does, did)
    • Will
    • Would
    • Should
    • Could
    • May
    • Might
    • Must

    For example:

    • “She is running to the store.” (The helping verb “is” indicates the present progressive tense)

    • “He has finished his homework.” (The helping verb “has” indicates the present perfect tense)

    • “They will attend the concert tonight.” (The helping verb “will” indicates the future tense)

    Helping verbs work together with the main verb to create a complete verb phrase that provides more detailed information about the action being described. They play an important grammatical role in forming complex verb tenses, voices, and moods in sentences.
