  • English verbs are very easy to understand if we know that every verb has "do".

  • This is similar to Math where every number equals 1 times itself.

  • 5 is equal to 1 times 5.

  • This is true of every number.

  • The 1 is there whether we write it or not.

  • Sometimes we write the 1; sometimes we do not.

  • It all depends on the situation.

  • In English, every verb has a "do" just how every number has a 1.

  • Sometimes we use the "do"

  • other times we do not.

  • "Eat", for example, is the same as " do eat".

  • Sometimes we can say, "eat."

  • Sometimes we can say, "do eat."

  • "Do not eat" already has the "do".

  • Technically, we don't add the word "do" when we say, "do not eat."

  • "Do" is already there.

  • The only word we add is "not".

  • Of course, this is because "not" requires the "do".

  • So, we have the choice "eat" or "do eat",

  • but to say, "not," we can only say, "do not eat."

  • As a question, "Do you eat?"

  • The sentence would be "You do eat," or "I do eat."

  • But, we reverse the "do" and the "you" so that they can become a question.

  • The "do" is already there,

  • we just don't use it in most statements.

  • But, the question requires it.

  • "Yes, I eat," or "I do eat."

  • Or, "No, I do not eat."

  • Of course, I'm not sure how long you'd live.

  • "I like this."

  • "I do like this!"

  • We will use the word "do" for emphasis.

  • This means that "I like this very much!"

  • The "do" is already there in both situations.

  • But, when we say it, it adds emphasis because, with English, more words

  • one way or anotheris more serious.

  • Similarly, with the past tense, "did eat" is the same as "ate".

  • When you're studying verbs, do not study words to think of "present" tense and "past" tense.

  • Do not think "eat" is "present" tense and "ate" is "past" tense.

  • Rather, think "did eat" is the same as "ate".

  • What is "ate"?

  • It's "did eat".

  • It's easier to see this connection if we use a regular verb that adds "-ed" at the end.

  • "Did walk" is equal to "walked".

  • The "d" is there at the end of "walked".

  • That "d" actually came from "did".

  • The "-ed" at the end of "walked" is the "did".

  • "Walked" is "did" and "walk" together.

  • Now, you can understand how every verb has "do".

  • Your English will be much easier.

  • I "do" hope so. ;-)

English verbs are very easy to understand if we know that every verb has "do".
