    Re: Irregular Verb list

    I don't care very much for the Chinese language and I don't think I'm ever going to try to learn it... It's too different for me. I like my languages Indo-European. I do admire people who are passionate about languages outside the family but that's just not my thing.

    I made it sound as if I were some kind of polyglot. I'm not. I speak only two languages fluently, Polish and English. Hindi sounds interesting. How's it going for your mother?

    Thanks for asking. My mother's taking a break these days. But she's doing quite well really. She can read it and understands quite a bit when watching Indian films. She just needs to keep going.

    Whether Polish or English is your first language, it's quite an achievement. Maybe it's because I read a lot. But I notice that a lot of natural English speakers speak poorly.

    I'm with you on Oriental languages. Though to my ear Thai is worse than Chinese, which is a shame considering their fascinating culture.
    Given the opportunity, I'd love to try Navajo and Quichua. They sound lovely and the cultures are amazing. But sticking to Europe, I'd go with Italian and Romanian.

    Re: Irregular Verb list

    Regarding the word 'hew' I'd like to say that this is a very obscure verb in spoken English. You most frequently encounter this word in literature, where it is not so uncommon.

    In my 62 years as an English speaking native of the US, I don't think I have ever heard a person verbally use 'hew,' 'hewed,' or 'hewn.' I believe that 'hewed' is the past tense of the verb, and 'hewn' would be used as an adjective, such as 'The table was made from wood hewn from a single tree.'

    I am NOT a teacher.

    Re: Irregular Verb list

    Quite a few of the verbs are very obscure and are in there to make the list as full as possible. I made the list with help from a couple of contributors and there are a number of verbs that I have never used. I have, however, used hew.

    Hello Tdol,

    I am very glad to post my first reply to a topic or a thread. I had to read all the messages related to your post before comenting.

    Well, I had to send you a private message but I have not been allowed to. Anyway, I have just looked the web link and it's very interested. I thank you ever so much for the sharing.

    Please Tdol, I know that some verbs don't have the inn-form when we talk about the present continuous. Then I would like to know more about.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Irregular Verb list

    You can send private messages after you have posted ten times- it is a measure against spam.

    Some verbs don't have an -ing form. For example, we don't say I am believing because what we believe is generally a state and not a temporary thing.
