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

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
