The BE verb Present and Past

BE is a special verb in English, and it has different rules from other verbs.
Here are some differences that are easy to see:

1. BE has no action. Most otherverbs (go, study, eat, sleep) show action

2. BE has many forms. They change with different subjects

I am You are He/She/It is

We are You (all) are They are

3. BE has different forms(irregular) for past tense

I was He/She It was

We were You were They were

propositions
