Irregular Verbs
Irregular verbs are verbs who do not follow the normal rules for verb forms. Their past and past participles are not formed by adding a -ed or -d.
Some verbs present, past, and past participles are the same.
Words such as cost, hit, hurt and let have the same past, present and past particles.

Your total cost will be three dollars and ninety- nine cents.
Last year the cost of this house was only five-hundred thousand dollars!
This disaster has cost us millions.
For some words, the past and present particle are different. The past particle is formed by adding -n or -en to the present.
Do, did, and done are an excellent example of this rule. As you can see, did, the past tense of do, is different from the present tense. Also, done, the past particle of do, is made by adding -ne.
Other verbs have the same past and past particles.
Some words have a different present tense, but the same past and past particles.
For example, the past and past particle of bring is brought.
Other words that follow this rule are catch, get, leave and sit.
You may sit where ever you want.
I sat near the exit.
He has sat near the door.
The past participle is formed for some verbs by adding -n or -en to the past.
