Can you please help me im stuck - i understand the difference of irregular verbs and verbs. Seems its basically the ending of the words that are different. What I dont understand is the use, can you use an iregular verb instead of a verb? For example could you use the irregular verb 'gets' in present simple tense headlines instead of a verb ?Im asking this because my response was wrong for a headline and i was informed that i need to use the subject plus the base form verb - is a base form verb an irregular verb too?
ok im just confused - I am thought irregular verbs and verbs are used in a different way - headline is supposed to be in present simple and read ' Supreme Court judge gets convicted ' is that the correct use? I think that it is correct usuage but as I said im confused by regular and irregular verbs. So it would be correct to say that of that headline - Supreme Court judge is the subject - 'gets ' is the base form of the verb for present simple.
And please, remember to use apostrophes, capital letters, commas and all the other paraphernalia It will make your questions and explanations easier to understand. Therefore, you will probably be provided with more exact answers.
"Regular" verbs form their past tense and past participle by adding "-ed."
"Irregular" verbs have different forms."Today, I walk. Yesterday, I walked."
"I buy. Yesterday, I bought."
There is no choice about whether you are going to use a "regular" or "irregular" form - the verb you choose determines how it is conjugated.
Thank you. That makes sense and has really clarified this for me. I appreciate that, have a great day!
