What Are Verbs and Voices?

Almost every sentence requires a verb. In the English language, the basic form of the verb is called the infinitive.
Verbs have different tenses: 'present,' to indicate that an action is being carried out; past,' to indicate that an action has been done; 'future,' to indicate that an action will be done.
The 'voice' of a verb shows whether the subject of the verb is doing the action of the verb or whether the action is being done on the subject. The two most common voices are the active voice (as in "I saw the car") and the passive voice (as in "The car was seen by me").
Remember verbs can be conjugated depending on the subject or the tense.
