    • THE PAST SIMPLE Nouf Ahmad Al-Harbi
    • THE TYPES OF VERBS
      • There are many types of verbs, but we are going to talk about
      • . Regular Verbs and Irregular Verbs - A regular verb (also known as a weak verb ) forms its past tense and past participle by adding -d or -ed (or in some cases -t ) to the base form : "We finished the project." - An irregular verb (also known as a strong verb ) doesn't form the past tense by adding -d or -ed : "Gus ate the wrapper on his candy bar."
    • REGULAR VERBS FORM
      • Adding -ed to verbs with all pronouns
              • I- He- It.....
              • Walk  walk ed
              • Work  work ed
              • Stay  stay ed
              • Play  play ed
    • EXCEPTIONS
      • 1) trap– tra pped This verb ends with one vowel + one consonant, so you need to double the consonant.
      • 2) shar e – shar ed
      • This verb ends with e, so you just need to add D.
      • 3) re l y – rel ied
      • This verb ends with consonant + y, so you need to change the y to i and add -ED.
      • 4) pani c – pani cked
      • This verb ends with –c, so you need to add –ked.
    • IRREGULAR VERBS FORM
      • The form CHANGES from infinitives, usually with a vowel change. *
      • * Can be grouped according to certain change patterns, which helps to memorize them.
