Transcript of Irregular Verbs

Irregular Verbs WAIT! Don't worry ! An irregular verb is just another type of verb. They're special though. The rebels of the verb types; they follow their own rules. You know what they are, you just use them so often in your daily life that you do not even notice. Conjugating Regular Verbs With regular verbs, the conjugation looks like this example, "to walk": Simple Present: I walk to work every day.
Simple Past: I walked to work yesterday.
Perfect Present: I've walked to work all week. BUT: If you were to use that same conjugation for irregular verbs, you would end up sounding like a child. For example, the verb "to shake" is irregular. With REGULAR verb conjugation:
Simple Present: shake
Simple Past: shaked
Perfect Present: shaked With WORD SPECIFIC, IRREGULAR verb conjugation:
Simple Present: shake
Simple Past: shook
Perfect Present: shaken Conjugating IRREGULAR Verbs Each irregular verb is conjugated differently; based on the actual word instead of the tense. Therefore, to use these irregular verbs properly, you would need to memorize the different conjugation for every single one of them. You already know how to conjugate all the irregular verbs. Learning them comes naturally. If you hear someone conjugate a verb incorrectly, you will notice. Learning and conjugating irregular verbs is more of a game of seeing what sounds right. Saying "I ran 12k yesterday." sounds better than saying "I runned 12k yesterday."
They both mean the same thing, and you could say either one and still be understood; though one is grammatically correct while the other is not. Some Examples of Irregular Verb Conjugation: Here is a list of some of the verbs that might have been left out: A-Z
