    Re: Irregular Verb list

    I've just signed up, hoping to view the full list of irregular verbs. But I still just have the usual 212. How do I access these?

    Despite the post at the top of this thread, both links given lead to the same page.

    Re: Irregular Verb list

    There may be as many as 616 irregular verbs, but all of the most common ones (and some not so common ones) are on the list. Some of the most commonly used verbs are irregular verbs (be, sit, run, etc.). It is best to become familiar with them, because you will run across them often. Forms of the verb to be, for example, are used quite often. Also, once you learn the main form of the verb you will know how to use its variations. (For example, run is used to form outrun and overrun.)

    Thank you for pointing that out. I've corrected the link.

    Re: Irregular Verb list

    Thanks, Red! That's quite a thorough list. (I'd never even heard of "behight" before, and I don't remember the last time I "begirded" something. )

    Hi Tdol

    Thank you very much for helping us. This is a very good list. I have some other lists of irregular verbs. In my lists there are some verbs which are not in the list you have provided ; for instance : hew. Is this verb considered a regular or an irregular verb?
    As far as I know, "hew" has two forms in the past participle :hewed /hewn. Which one shall I use ? Are these two forms interchangeable or should I use them differently? What contexts?

    Thank you very much in advance.
    All the best,

    Teia

    Since you can say either "had hewed" or "had hewn" you may use either one and you don't have to use "hew" as an irregular verb. You may ignore the irregular form if you wish. (In fact, I recommend it.)
