    Default verb : Differences

    Please Help!

    I would like to know the difference between :

    1. PHRASAL VERBS

    2. IRREGULAR VERBS

    3. UNCOMMON VERBS (SOME EXAMPLES WOULD HELP)

    is that irregular verbs are uncommon verbs or are irregular verbs simply old english ?

    thank you in advance

    Uncommon verbs are simply verbs that we don't use much, whether regular or irregular. They might like 'betide' be old or simply specialised, or even new. This isn't a grammatical category.
