 • Form:
    – use the base form of the verb for most forms
    – add –s or –es to verbs with 3rd person singular
      subjects
    – in negative statements, use do not (don’t) or does not
      (doesn’t) plus the base verb
    – when we add –s to base verbs, we change the spelling
      sometimes
    – two verbs are irregular in simple present: be (am, is,
      are) and have (has, have)
    – be forms its negative differently from other verbs
