    Special collection of verbs.

    Hi!
    Can anyone provide examples of verbs that is an infinitive and a past form of another verb in the same time, of course, with a different meaning?
    Ex: Find Found [past form] Found
    Found [infinitive]Founded Founded

    Thanks in advance!

    I did not find "weed" as a past form of any verb. Can you tell me its infinitive?
