Principal Parts of Irregular Verbs


Usually you add -ed to a verb to show past tense. Irregular verbs do not follow this rule. Instead of having -ed forms to show past tense, irregular verbs usually change to other words.


Present        Present Participle            Past          Past Participle

see                (am, is, are) seeing              saw            (has, have, had) seen


There are many, many irregular verbs in the English language. For a more extensive list, please look online or refer to the list in Mrs. Rielage's classroom.
