List of Irregular Verbs


This lesson consists of a complete list of irregular verbs in alphabetical order. First of all let’s look into what irregular verbs are.


There are mainly two types of verbs.


They are, Regular Verbs and Irregular Verbs.


In regular verbs, we add -d, -ed or -ied to form their past simple and past participle.


For example;


Simple present

Simple past

Past participle

scare

scared

work

But, irregular verbs are different. Their infinitive or simple present, past simple and past participle are sometimes the same and sometimes different.
