The basic form of a verb is called the infinitive. To make the past tense of regular verbs, the ending -ed is added to the infinitive (‘I asked her a question’). The present participle refers to things that are still happening.
When a verb ends with s, ch, sh, x or z, we add the letter e, and then we add the letter s.
Verbs can be categorized as transitive, intransitive, regular, irregular etc.
Verbs end in S because, whenever we use Singular Pronoun with Verbs then Verbs takes S form. Example: She reads books. He plays cricket.
Present simple: spelling When the verb ends in -ch, -ss, -sh, -x or -zz, we add -es. When the verb ends in a consonant + -y we change y to i and add -es. But when the verb ends in a vowel + -y we just add -s.
