The Four Principal Parts of Verbs
A verb has four principal parts: Present, Present Participle, Past, Past Participle
Verbs can be regular and irregular. A regular verb is a verb for which the past and past participle are formed by adding -ed or -d to the present form. An irregular verb is a verb for which the past and past participle are not formed by adding -ed or -d to the present form.
A conjugation is a list of the singular form of a verb and the plural form of a verb in a particular tense.
