I've been asked (why me? - but it's an interesting question) -
Plz Bob, I am having difficultty finding the past tense of the verb 'wind' ? Plz help me ! will wait for your reply!!!
It depends which of the two homographs (Search Results for 'homograph' - UsingEnglish.com) you mean - /wınd/ or /waınd/ (both verbs). The simple past of the first is "winded": The fall only winded him; the simple past of the second is "wound": The gardener wound the hose onto the reel.
But be careful with "wound" - it's another homograph: /waɷnd/, not /wu:nd/. So: The path wound up to the top of the hill; and when he reached the top, he fell back down. But he was only winded, not wounded. In this example the 3 w-words are pronounced /waɷnd/, /'wındıd/ and /'wu:ndıd/ (!)
(This is probably more than the original questioner wanted to know, but it's how I would have answered if the question had been posted in the forum.)
