Abstract

This qualitative research arose out of my personal difficulties with understanding contemporary descriptions of Standard English sentence and auxiliary verb patterns and with explaining these descriptions to my ESL students. The research addressed the question: How can the knowledge that we possess about sentence and auxiliary verb patterns be presented more efficiently and simply for ESL students? The outcome of this research was the creation of a model that highlights the similarities and differences between syntactical sentence and auxiliary verb patterns and uses everyday language to explain the semantics of these patterns.
