Abstract: The main verb of a clause may have one or more modifying verbs, which describe the function of the main verb in more detail. Modal verbs are a group of verbs, which require at least one modifying verb in the clause (explicitly or as assumed). There is also a larger group of verbs, which may or may not have a modifying verb. Such verb chains in English can be translated with corresponding chains in Finnish. The problem is that the inflection of the modifying verb in target language cannot be predicted from source language. This report suggests a solution to the problem
