"He did go to school"- basically combine a past tense verb and present tense verb for an overall past tense. I was just wondering and searching for similar examples.
 
Cloa, I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are querying.
 
This might be used after someone said that he didn't go to school as a way of contradicting them. It is past tense, but it is used for emphasis in cases like contradiction.
