    Irregular verbs

    Hello,
    Today I'm starting to learn all irregular verb, but I found several words which me forced to create a new thread here

    BID (Farewell) - BID / BADE - BIDDEN
    BID (Offer amount) BID - BID
    Do these words have any different? My dictionary says NO.

    Another word Backslide.
    BACKSLIDE - BACKSLID - BACKSLIDDEN / BACKSLID
    For this word I got big doubt, because dictionaries says that "BACKSKID" Don't exist. Do it exist or don't?

    " BID (Farewell) - BID / BADE - BIDDEN
    BID (Offer amount) BID - BID
    Do these words have any different? My dictionary says NO."

    Check your dictionary again. Bid can be a verb or a noun, and they have completely different meanings.

    "Another word Backslide.
    BACKSLIDE - BACKSLID - BACKSLIDDEN / BACKSLID"

    Here is the definition of backslide from the Oxford English Dictionary:

    backslide: verb ( past -backslid ; past participle; backslid or backslidden).
    To relapse into bad ways or error. Example 1: Converted vegetarians backslide to T-bones. | [as n. ] ( backsliding)
    Example 2: There would be no backsliding from the administration's sound policies.

    "...because dictionaries says that "BACKSKID" Don't exist. Do it exist or don't?
    "
    Are you certain you have not made a typo here? If yes, then "bacskid" is not in my dictionary either. I would tend to say that it does not exist in normal usage. It might be jargon in some professions (like stunt car drivers) but it has no relation to backslide.

    Re: Irregular verbs

    BTW, some of the verbs in these lists are pretty obscure- they're just there to try to be as complete as possible. You'll find over 600 in ours, but you may not need to know them all- few do.

    My second dream is to talk/write in English language like native English speaker.
    And I'm gonna learn everyone it doesn't matter how much time it will take.
    In 2012 I have learned 300 new English words -) and I feel absolutely awesome even though I know that I'm doing mistakes in grammar...
