    Question past participle?

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you could help me out?

    If I call "wink" a verb, as in "I can wink", what do I call "winked", as in "I winked at her" or "I winked at her yesterday"? Is it the past participle or is it it an irregular verb or phrasal verb, or something else..?

    Many thanks

    Steve
