    Hide - hid - hidden

    Which book did you buy? Have you found any other errors yet?

    Good morning, Nike80,

    What do you mean by third form of the verb ‘hide’? I think, it refers to past participle form. As a matter of fact, English main verbs have four to six forms, e.g. infinitive, base, past simple, past participle, present participle and present simple, 3rd person singular forms. Of the six forms, the infinitive, present participle and present simple, 3rd person singular forms have similar patterns for all verbs. So you do not see these three forms in the grammar books. To learn more about verb forms, read: Forms of Main Verbs
