Transcript of Irregular Verbs
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 (the different forms of) Regular Verbs
With regular verbs, the conjugation looks like this example, "to walk":
Simple Present: I
to work every day.
Simple Past: I
to work yesterday.
Perfect Present: I
to work all week.
If you were to use that same conjugation for irregular verbs, you would end up sounding like a young child. For example, the verb "to shake" is irregular.
Simple Present: shake
This is WRONG!
, IRREGULAR verb conjugation:
Simple Present: shake
This is CORRECT!
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.
a 12k yesterday," sounds better than saying "I
a 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.
