    didn't had time

    I didn't had time to do it yet.

    Is this sentence correct?

    Re: didn't had time

    No, it isn't. "I didn't have time." is correct.
    Or, "I haven't had time yet".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Elitez:

    I have great news! You will NEVER make another mistake like this if you simply remember this easy rule:

    After "do," "does," and "did," you ALWAYS (no exceptions!) use the base form of the verb (the infinitive with NO "to").

    I do not have time to do it.

    She does not have time to do it.

    We did not have time to do it.


    Does he have time to do it?

    Did she have time to do it?

    Similarly:

    She eats candy, but she does not eat donuts.

    He ate broccoli, but he did not eat mushrooms.
