Be (Present)

The verb be is very common in English.
It is used with a noun or an adjective.

For example: with a noun:

Ben is a boy.

with an adjective:
Moby is tall.
I am fine.

In the present, be has three forms: am, is and are.

Be – Present
Singular Plural

In the short form (contraction), we write the noun, pronoun or question word together
with the verb be (am, is, are) as one word. We do that by dropping the first letter
(am, is, are) and writing an apostrophe ( ) instead of the missing letters.

For example: Moby is tall. = Moby’s tall.

We are fine. = We’re fine.
