About auxiliaries


hi there. I wonder if there are more other auxiliary verbs inaddition to that 23 common verbs.

for example when we say : "I let him go." , can we consider the verb "let" as an auxiliary, just because of that it's followed by a bare infinitive as that 23 auxiliaries do?

in other words is any verb followed by a bare infinitive called an auxiliary? if not, what is the exact definition of an auxiliary verb?
