Primary Helping (Auxiliary) Verbs

Primary Auxiliary verbs (also known as Helping Verbs) are verbs that are used together with the main verb of the sentence to express the action or state. They support the main verbs to form the structure of sentence as per specific tense. Primary Auxiliary Verbs are of three types:

1. Verbs 'TO BE' - Is, are, am, was, were
2. Verbs 'TO HAVE' - Has, have, had
3. Verbs 'TO DO' - Do, does, did

Sahaayak kriyaa vah kriyaa hai jo vaakya meiN mukhya verb ke saath kriyaa yaa sthiti ko darshaane meiN prayukt hotee hai. Yah mukhya verb ko pratyek tense ke anusaar vaakya banaane meiN sahaayak hotee hai. Sahaayak kriyaa mukhyatah uprilikhit teen prakaar kee hotee hai.

The verb "TO BE" is used as - Is / are / am / was / were. It’s simple meaning is "to be" or be something. As helping or auxiliary verbs, it is used in tenses, active-passive and direct-indirect about which we will learn in detail later. Here we will learn about its other usages in a sentence.

Simple meaning of verb " TO HAVE" denotes "possession". "Have" is used as - Has / have / had. As helping or auxiliary verbs, it is also used in tenses, active-passive and direct-indirect about which we will learn in detail later. Here we will learn about its simple meaning "Possession".

Simple meaning of verb "TO DO" is used as - Do / does / did. It's simple meaning is "to perform an action" and vastly used in tenses, active-passive and direct-indirect about which we will learn in detail later. Here we will learn about its other usages in sentence.

"TO BE" kriyaa kaa in shabdoN dwaaraa English meiN prayog hotaa hai -is/are/am/was/were. Isakaa Hindi meiN arth hotaa hai "HONA" aur Hindi meiN isake roop hai -hai/hoon/thaa/hogaa. Inahee artho meiN isake roop hai - Rahataa hai / hotaa hai / Huaa hai. Yah tense, active-passive aur direct-indirect meiN bhee prayukt hotee hai jinake baare meiN aage vistaar se jaanenge. YahaaN ham inake doosare prayogo ke baare meiN jaanenge.

"TO HAVE" kaa Hindi meiN prachlit arth hai "paas honaa / kabje meN". Paas honaa vyakt karane ke liye har baar 'paas' shabd ka prayog jarooree nahee hai jaise - 'Mere paas jaankaaree hai' ko 'Mujhe jaankaaree hai' bhee kah sakate hai. Yah tense, active-passive aur direct-indirect meN bhi prayukt hotee hai jinake baare meiN aage vistaar se jaanenge. YahaaN ham inake arth "paas hona" ke baare meiN jaanenge.

"TO DO" (Do / Does / Did) kaa simple arth hai 'Kaarya Karnaa' aur baDe roop meiN isakaa istemaal tenses, active-passive aur direct-indirect meiN hotaa hai. YahaaN ham isake alag prayog ke baare meiN jaanenge.

Use of Helping Verbs

We have seen above examples of Helping Verb. Now we are to learn about:

1. What is Ist person, 2nd person, 3rd person?
2. Which helping verb is used with 1st/2nd/3rd person?
3. What are sentence forming Rules of it?

Upar hamane sahaayak kriyaa ke kuchh udaaharaN paDhe. Ab hame inake baare meiN seekhanaa hai:

1. Pahalaa vyakti, doosaraa vyakti, teesaraa vyakti kyaa hai?
2. Kis vyakti ke saath kaun see sahaayak kriyaa istemaal honee hai?
3. Vaakya banaane ke niyam kyaa hai?

We give below a table to understand above stated point number 1 & 2.

Person Subject Helping Verb of Present Tense Helping Verb of Past Tense
Ist person I am, have was, had
2nd Person You are, have were, had
3rd Person-Singular He/She/It/Ram is, has was, had
3rd Person-Plural We/They/boys are, have were, had


Sentence Forming Rules

Subject, Verb and Object play a major roll in forming any sentence. In small sentences 'Object' is missing (He plays.). in some sentences 'Subject' remains silent (Go to school.) and in one-word sentences, only 'Verb' remains in the sentence (Stop., Sit-down.).

Sequence of positive sentence = Subject + Helping Verb + Main Verb (if need be) + Object.

In negative sentence 'Not' is added after Helping Verb and before Main Verb(if any) or Object. In Interrogative sentence, only position of 'Helping Verb' is changed and placed in the beginning. In interrogative and negative sentences, 'Not' is added after Subject and before Main Verb (if any) or Object. The Rule of making sentences of Helping Verb is given below:

English vaakya meiN subject, verb aur object kee mukhya bhumikaa hotee hai. Chhote vaakyo meiN 'Object' nahee hotaa (vah khelataa hai), kuchh vaakyo meiN 'Subject' chhipaa hotaa hai (school jaao) aur ek-shabd waale vaakyo meiN kewal 'Verb' hotaa hai (Ruko, BaiTh Jaao).

Normal vaakyo kaa kram = Subject + Helping Verb + Main Verb (yadi jaroorat hai) + Object.

Vaakya ko negative banaane ke liye 'Helping Verb' ke baad aur Main Verb yaa Object se pahale 'Not' lagaate hai. Prashanvaachak vaakyo meN, kewal Helping Verb kee position ko badal kar vaakya ke shuru meiN lagaate hai. Prashnavaachak aur negative vakayo meiN 'Subject' ke baad aur Main Verb yaa Object se pahale 'Not' lagaate hai. Helping Verb ke vakyo ko banaane kaa Rule neeche diyaa hai.

Rule - Helping Verbs - is/am/are/was/were/has/have/had/will/shall
Type of Sentence Rule
Positive Subject + Helping Verb + object (.)
Negative Subject + Helping Verb + not + object (.)
Interrogative Helping Verb + Subject + object (?)
