Notes On Finite and Nonfinite Verbs - CBSE Class 7 English Grammar
Finite Verbs A finite verb (sometimes called main verbs) is a verb that has a subject, this means that it can be the main verb in a sentence. It shows tense (past / present etc) or number (singular / plural). For example:- I live in Germay. (I is the subject - live describes what the subject does - live is a finite verb). Non-Finite Verbs A non-finite verb has no subject, tense or number. The only non-finite verb forms are the infinitive (indicated by to), the gerund or the participle. For example:- I travelled to Germany to improve my German. (To improve is in the infinitive form).
