WHAT ARE MODALS?

 


All the auxiliary verbs except be, do and have are called modals. Unlike other auxiliary verbs, modals only exist in their helping form; they cannot act alone as the main verb in a sentence.

The modal verbs are : 

can : can you help me ?

could : could I borrow your dictionary?

may : may I have another cup of coffee?

might : They might give us a 10% discount

must : we must obey our elders

shall : shall I help you with your luggage?

should : I think we should check everything again

ought to : We ought to employ a professional writer

will : I 'll  get back to you first thing on Monday

would : Would you mind waiting a moment ?
