    Past participle of born

    Hi
    What is the past participle of 'born' ?
    Is it borned?
    One of the posts says that is right. But I have even doubt about that. When I type on the word it says its incorrect.
    Please reply
    Thanks

    "To born" is not an English verb. "To bear" is the verb you are asking about.
    bear - present
    bore - past
    born - past participle
    bearing - present participle
