Grade 5 Grammar Lesson 3 Verbs finite and non-finite (1)

A verb may be finite or non-finite in form. A verb that shows tense, person or number (singular/plural) is finite. A verb form that is not affected by person or number is non-finite.

I climb trees.

She loves mangoes.

They went home.

She is eating fruit.

The verbs in bold print above are finite verbs because they change with the change in tense, person or number.
