Irregular Verb List

An irregular verb is a verb whose conjugation does not follow a typical regular pattern as a regular verb.


Regular Verb - Example

look, looked, looked

In this case you add - ed at the end of the verb "look". There are many verbs like this where you add -ed, this makes it a regular verb.

Examples:
accept, accepted, accepted
answer, answered, answered
bury, buried, buried
clean, cleaned, cleaned
calculate, calculated, calculated
call, called, called
charge, charged, charged
cry, cried, cried
wash, washed, washed
These are regular verbs, you just add -ed or the y becomes i and then the ending is -ied.(example: cried, buried)
