Lecture Extra:Irregular Verbs

As Purdue University’s Online Writing Page notes, in English, regular verbs consist of three main parts:

* the root form (present),
(simple) past, and

* past participle.

While regular verbs have an -ed ending added to the root verb for both the simple past and past participle. ..Irregular verbs do not follow this pattern, and instead take on an alternative pattern.

Find below links to the Purdue University Online Writing Page on irregular verbs; and, some exercises to help yopu recognize them.
