Topic: Verb phrase

These resources cover verb phrases: phrases with a verb as the Head word. A verb phrase can have a main verb on its own (e.g. He gobbled the chocolate), or a main verb together with one or more helping verbs called auxiliary verbs (e.g. He is gobbling the chocolate; He has been gobbling chocolate all morning).
