Structure of Sentence

Main verb: 1st form of verb, e.g., go, buy, write.
Helping verb: Will
Note. According to traditional English, two helping verbs ‘will’ and ‘shall’ are used. If the subject of the sentence is ‘he, she, they, you, it or a noun’, then ‘will’ is used. If the subject is ‘I or We’, then ‘shall’ is used. However, in modern English, the difference between ‘will’ and ‘shall’ has almost disappeared. In modern English, the helping verb ‘will’ is used with all subjects (e.g., he, she, they, you, I, we, or noun). The helping verb ‘shall’ is not used very much at all.
