English gr 4

posted by on .

What is the teacher trying to teach by telling the students to identify group verbs. How is a verb different from a group verb?

Thanks for your help.

    I've never heard of "group verbs" although I taught English grammar for many years.

    She may have gotten her tongue twisted and means "verb groups."

    You shouldn't question the teacher.
    group verb: shouldn't question
    modal: shouldn't verb: question
    That is one way to get a group verb, a modal plus a verb.

    Another is to use an auxiliary verb with a verb.
    You haven't seen a better teacher in the 4th grade than this.
    verb: seen auxiliary: haven't
    group verb: haven't seen
