a: Auxiliary verb ~
b: a helping verb

What: "An auxiliary verb is like a helping verb. For instance, "I kicked the ball." Kicked is just an action verb explaining something within a limited frame of time. An auxiliary verb would be a verb that clarifies or adds detail, but is more abstract and continues over time. For example, "I kicked the ball to Steve, but Steve is always spacing out, so the ball rolled right by him." "
