English irregular verbs

Irregular verbs (▶see 2.3.7) are verbs in which the past form and the -ed form are not spelled in the regular way. The ‘regular way’ adds -ed to the base form of the verb (e.g. base form = walk, past form = walked, -ed form = (has) walked). Some of the verbs listed here have regular and irregular variants (▶see 2.3.8). On the five verb forms, ▶see 2.3.1. For the verb be, ▶see 2.3.9.
