    plethora of verb tenses, and many of them can be quite complex given either their subtle differences, or the irregular nature of the verb itself. Well then, why do English speakers need all these verb forms? Does it even make that much of a difference? Why can’t, “I has been eated the grapes,” just be culturally accepted as a normal way to express the earlier eating of these luscious fruits of the vineyard? “Just because that’s the way it is,” is not a satisfactory answer.

    Introduction In this assignment I attempt to demonstrate what a verb phrase is. I highlight various types of verb. I also clarify definitions of auxiliary, or helping verbs and the six main categories of English verbs: transitive, intransitive, ditransitive, intensive, complex-transitive, and prepositional respectively.

    problems related to subject-verb agreement have been examined by many educators and researchers. For example, one can mention the study carried out by Siti Stapa and Mohd Izahar (2010).

    PROGRESSIVE, STATIVE AND DYNAMIC VERBS THE PROGRESSIVE FORMS OF A VERB INDICATE THAT SOMETHING IS HAPPENING or was happening or will be happening. When used with the past, the progressive form shows the limited duration of an event: "While I was doing my homework, my brother came into my room." The past progressive also suggests that an action in the past was not entirely finished. (Compare "I did my homework." to "I was doing my homework.") This is even more evident in the passive progressive construction:

    Agreement with conjoined subjects Agreement is complicated with subjects consisting of conjoined NPs. In VSO word order, the verb agrees only with the first conjunct. Which means that, the NP in VSO is given a check feature of the first conjunct. Then the coordination template checks for this feature. If it is found the whole conjunction is given the same features as the first conjunct (Attia.2010). كتبت البنت والولد الرسالة Katabat albintu w-alwaladu

    of the English verb “to graduate.” Over the past century or so, the meaning of this verb has broadened to encompass a larger meaning and because the definition has changed, so must the grammar associated with it in writing and speech must change (American Heritage). The verb “to graduate” comes from the Medieval Latin past participle graduare, meaning to take a degree and was later adopted into Middle English (Pearsall, Concise Oxford English).

    Commentators of Aristotle ABSTRACT: The ancient commentaries on Aristotle's Peri Hermeneias (De Interpretatione) give us important elements to understand more clearly some difficult passages of this treatise. In the case of the indefinite names and verbs (i.e. 'not-man', and 'does not recover', respectively), these commentaries reveal a doctrine which explains not only the nature of the indefinites, but also why Aristotle introduces these kinds of term in Peri Hermeneias. The coherence and explanatory
