Verb

bes

(now, chiefly, dialectal) Third-person singular simple present indicative form of be

(dialectal, nonstandard) Present tense inflected form of be: am or are.

Usage notes

Into the Early Modern English period, be was still sometimes inflected like regular verbs in the ordinary present indicative (i.e. "they be", in addition to "they are"), although "he bes" was uncommon (compare "he beeth"). Today, such inflected forms are limited to the alternate, dynamic / lexical conjugation of be described in its Usage notes.
