Abstract Palmer (1979) presents a lengthy defence of the thesis advanced in his book The English Verb (1974) that the English auxiliaries are not main verbs - a defence against the arguments I had put forward in Huddleston (1976) and elsewhere. In this reply my purpose is to argue that there are serious flaws in his defence which, I believe, invalidate it and the thesis it supports.
