    kein participle

    What is the meaning of kein participle? I saw it in the irregular verbs table. Is it an English word? What does it mean?
    For example: can --> could --> kein participle

    Was the table in a German book/site? If so, 'kein' means 'no'.

    No modal verb has a past participle.
