    I don't think I've ever seen a more comprehensive list of irregular verbs.

    To be honest I always hated learning irregular verbs. But on the other hand there are nost so many as you may have thought. Many of them are contained in the others . For example : hear is in overhear, hold in behold, take in betake etc.etc so you only have to teach 3 forms for hear,hold,take etc. Of course their meaning is another thing

    Many are formed by adding prefixes to other verbs, but they're included for the sake of, erm, inclusivity. And then again, they don't always adhere rigidly to the original pattern- input has both irregular and regular forms, the irregular one from tradition and the regular one from the modern tendenc y to make all new verbs regular. My own favourites dight and bedight, neither of which I have ever heard used.

    Exactly, that's what is called comprehensiveness, right?
    Here, I see you lack a vision other than your own, it clowds some very important (for others) ways of presenting info needed on a daily basis.

    One of my very useful ways of seeing things is to look even through eyes of an illiterate person or a person with very limited skills. 'To turn a handicap into advantage' , something like that.

    What does "to tine" mean and how do you conjugate it, 5jj? I can't find it in the dictionaries.
