REGULAR VERBS

A regular verbs is one that conforms to the usual rule for forming its simple past tense. its past participle. The “usual” rule is to add -ed or -d to the base form of the vocabulary to create the past forms.

Like this for regular verbs, the simple past tense and past particle are formed:

*Add ”ed” to most vocabulary:

  • Jump > Jumped
  • Paint > Painted

If a vocabulary of one syllable ends [consonant-vowel-consonant], double add and the final letter “ed”:

  • Chat > Chatted
  • Stop > Stopped

(For +250 Action Verbs List)

If the final letter is “w,” “x,” or “y,” don’t double it:

  • sew > sewed
  • play > played
  • fix > fixed




If the last syllable of a longer vocabulary is stressed and ends [consonant – vowel – consonant] double the last letter and add “ed”:

  • incur > incurred
  • prefer > preferred

If the first syllable of a longer verb is stressed and the vocabulary ends [letter-vowel-letter], just add “ed”:

  • open > opened
  • enter > entered
  • swallow > swallowed

If the vocabulary ends “e,” just add “d”:

  • thrive > thrived
  • guzzle > guzzled

If the vocabulary ends [consonant + “y”], change the “y” to an “i” and add “ed”:  

  • cry > cried

Regular vocabulary in English create the past simple and past participle by adding -ed to the base form.

BASED FORM PAST SİMPLE  PAST PARTİCİPLE
arrive arrived arrived
call called called
wait waited waited

 

For example If the vocabulary ends in a consonant and -y, we change the -y to -i and added -ed :

BASED FORM PAST SİMPLE PAST PARTİCİPLE
marry married married
study studied studied

 

For example If a vocabulary ends in -e we simply add -d :

BASED FORM PAST SİMPLE PAST PARTİCİPLE
hate hated hated
like liked liked
