    Post Unit 06: Irregular Verbs

    Irregular verbs are an important feature of English. We use irregular verbs a lot when speaking, less when writing. Of course, the most famous English verb of all, the verb "to be", is irregular.

    What is the difference between regular verbs and irregular verbs?

    With regular verbs, the rule is simple...
    The past simple and past participle always end in -ed: finish finished finished
    stop stopped stopped
    work worked worked

    But with irregular verbs, there is no rule...
    Sometimes the verb changes completely: sing sang sung
    Sometimes there is "half" a change: buy bought bought
    Sometimes there is no change: cut cut cut

    One good way to learn irregular verbs is to try sorting them into groups, as above.


    If in doubt, a good dictionary can tell you if a verb is regular or irregular.
