She has a hard time expressing her thoughts and ideas, has trouble finding words within her mental lexicon, and has immature morphology and syntactic structure, omitting verb tense and agreement and gender reversal (Hogan, Bridges, Wymer & Volk, as cited in Chabon & Cohn, 2010). Judging from her age, Tessa should be in Brown’s stage V+ and should be able to use past tense “be” auxiliary and main verbs, and show infrequent use of the present progressive tense. She presents at stage Late IV/Early V where the regular past tense first emerges (Justice & Ezell, 2008). Due to her Late IV/Early V stage presentation and her lack of appropriate use of verb tense endings, the author will focus his teaching on verbs.
Verb Types Verbs can be defined as words of action. Verbs are descriptive. There are many types of verbs and they can be classified into categories. There are four main verb categories namely: main verbs, auxiliary verbs, transitive verbs, and intransitive verbs. Verbs can also be categorized by form into modals, “be” verbs, tense (present, past, future, perfect, progressive), and verbs that reflect information about voice (Justice & Ezell, 2008).
