    Post query on regular verbs

    hi all,,

    in the below link of the same site for the definition of regular verbs.

    usingenglish.com/glossary/regular-verb.html


    As regular verbs follow a fixed pattern, there is no irregular verb list in existence.
    what does this above mean...

    does it mean that we do not ahve any list of irregular verbs but i suppose we do have list of ir-regular verbs list as per this link

    Welcome to the forum, Shravan.

    Please observe the correct use of capital letters and punctuation:

    I am unable to understand or explain the sentence you have quoted.

    I suggest you ignore it.

    The links do indeed lead to a very fine list of irregular verbs.

    Have fun with them!

    Shravee, I am convinced, that it is a mistake. It should read "there is no regular verb list in existence". I will send a message to the administrator.

    Yes, it's a mistake and I cannot for the life of me think what it's supposed to mean. I have deleted it. Thanks for spotting it and letting us know.

    On second thoughts, I can- it's from the program which has lost the list. It's a broken link error message. I have fixed the link.
