Introduction to modals


can, could, may, might, must, ought, shall, should, will, would

Main points


  • Modals are always the first word in a verb group.

  • All modals except for ‘ought’ are followed by the base form of a verb.

  • ‘Ought’ is followed by a ‘to’-infinitive.

  • Modals have only one form.

  1. Modals are always the first word in a verb group. All modals except for'ought'are followed by the base form of a verb.

I must leave fairly soon.

I think it will look rather nice.

Things might have been so different.

People may be watching.

  1. ‘Ought’ is always followed by a ‘to’-infinitive.

She ought to go straight back to England.

Sam ought to have realised how dangerous it was.

You ought to be doing this.

  1. Modals have only one form, There is no ‘-s’ form for the third person singular of the present tense, and there are no ‘-ing’ or ‘-ed’ forms.

There’s nothing I can do about it.

I’m sure he can do it.

  1. Modals do not normally indicate the time when something happens. There are, however, a few exceptions.

‘Shall’ and ‘will’ often indicate a future event or situation.

I shall do what you suggested. He will not return for many hours.

‘Could’ is used as the past form of ‘can’ to express ability. ‘Would’ is used as the past form of ‘will’ to express the future.

He remembered that he would see his mother the next day.

  1. In spoken English and informal written English, ‘shall’ and ‘will’ are shortened to ‘-’ll’ and ‘would’ to ‘-’d’, and added to a pronoun.

I’ll see you tomorrow.

I hope you’ll agree.

Posy said she’d love to stay.

‘Shall’, ‘will’, and ‘would’ are never shortened if they come at the end of a sentence.



Paul said he would come, and I hope he will.

In spoken English, you can also add ‘-’ll’ and ‘-’d’ to nouns.



My car’ll be outside.

The headmaster’d be furious.

Warning: Remember that ‘-d’ is also the short form of the auxiliary ‘had’.

I’d heard it many times.
