List of irregular verbs

 

For a more visual version, click here.

 

The following units will be about verb forms and their uses. The list below will be very useful to form some verb tenses. We include it now because it is necessary for you to learn it by heart, or failing that, to have it always to hand.

 

Before starting to study it, you must bear in mind:

(1) that a few verbs have both regular and irregular forms : burn (burnt or burned), dream (dreamt or dreamed), learn (learnt or learned)...;

(2) that hang is regular (simple past and past participle: hanged) with the meaning of "killing somebody by dropping him or her with a rope around his or her neck";

(3) and that lie is regular (lied) to refer to the act of not telling the truth.
