Present Indefinite tense
The Present Indefinite tense is used to express habitual actions, general truths, and routine activities. Let's break down its formation in affirmative, negative, and interrogative forms and create sentences for each.
Affirmative (Positive) Form:
The affirmative form of Present Indefinite tense is straightforward. For most verbs, we use the base form (the infinitive without "to"):
Subject + Base Verb (infinitive without "to")
- I work in an office.
- She plays the piano every evening.
Negative Form:
To create the negative form of the Present Indefinite tense, we use the auxiliary verb "do" in the present (does for third person singular) along with "not," and the base form of the main verb:
Subject + (do/does) + not + Base Verb
- I do not work on weekends.
- He does not play video games.
Interrogative Form:
To form questions in the Present Indefinite tense, we also use the auxiliary verb "do" (does for third person singular), but this time it comes before the subject:
(Do/Does) + Subject + Base Verb + ?
- Do you work in the mornings?
- Does she play basketball?
Let's create sentences:
1. Affirmative:
- They read books every night.
- My cat sleeps on the couch.
2. Negative:
- We do not watch horror movies.
- He does not eat spicy food.
3. Interrogative:
- Do you exercise regularly?
- Does it rain often in this city?
These sentences showcase the usage of the Present Indefinite tense in various contexts, from routine activities to general truths and habits.
