    It is quite a coincidence to see this here after what I recently posted on the subject. It makes me wonder where you got the idea from.

    Guys, it's really incredible. I've just printed out the full list of Irregular Verbs. The total quantity is 281. Is that all? Or maybe there some more of them? It's really incredible! So many!
    Though I ticked "be", still I'm not confident that it's correct as I don't really know.

    hey,I think English is such a strange language...for example,we have the verb "wait" ,why do we need the verb "await",but it's really interesting to remember all synonym words.
