I have been wondering about this question for a long time but I was hesitant to ask as it seemed a very small one. But I must ask it now:
Is the verb To be
auxiliary verb(helping verb)?
I think it can be used in both ways but when I went through the internet it says to be is always a linking verb(they're even called true linking verb). Could you please shed some light on it?
- He is a teacher (is- linking verb)
- He is working now (is- auxiliary verb)
