Modal verbs express a variety of moods or attitudes of the speaker towards the meaning expressed by the main verb in a clause
All the auxiliary verbs except be, do
have are called modals. Unlike other auxiliary verbs modals only exist in their helping form; they cannot act alone as the main verb in a sentence.
Be, do, and have

Modal verbs are always used with other verbs whose meaning they modify in some wayOne modal cannot be followed immediately by another in English
Modals and other verbsSlide26

defective verbs or anomalous verbs, i.e. not regular but deviating from the rule
