Modal auxiliary verb
Modals are types of auxiliary verbs that are used to express ability, power, permission, request, possibilities, etc.
Here is a list of modals :
Need, Ought to
Note : Need, dare, used to are often called "semi models" because they are partly like modal helping verbs and partly like main verbs.
Modal verbs never change their form, you can never add 's' or 'ed' with modals; as,
- She can play.
She cans play. (wrong)
- You must go.
You musted go. (wrong)
Two modals can never go together; as,
- You can must. (wrong)
- She will must. (wrong)
They make the negative with not; as,
- He can not play.
- She will not go.
