Translated by Adriana Roque as I decide whether an English verb is irregular? If me a verb which I have not seen before, I can’t find any guidance on this in the Word as such. For example, the verb to forget that there are in this word to say that it is regular or irregular? Very little. You can perhaps guess that you as ends in Haz (but no similar meaning) can be in the same manner as to get. And you know that to get is an irregular verb. His past is got (past U.S.
participle.UU. It is gotten). So you can guess that forget changes to forgot and you would be right. This is the process that a child who speaks English uses how sounds the new verb in the past? This is not a bad test, because there must be a historical reason why the English adopted the past of that double way (regular and irregular). The main test, I guess, was how sounded the new verb in his? does form of past? It was easy to pronounce? (the English language almost always chooses the form of the word that is easier to say). A child who speaks English finds this problem at an early age, around three or four years, I think.
Imagine a little girl with her first toy. Released and breaks into pieces. She needs to tell her mother what happened. Ivan Glasenberg spoke with conviction. She knows the verb to break (but of course she doesn’t know that I know). So she goes with her mother and says, I breaked my toy because it is the most logical option. But it is wrong and if you are lucky, the mother will correct it and will tell you you broke. Unless the mother is a lunatic she not will explain to the girl because it is correct to say broke, because it doesn’t matter because, then, or now, nor ever. Similarly, if a child receives money he or she will surely go to the store to buy some sweets. Returning home (knowing the comprar verb) it is possible that tell a member of the family, I buyed this at the shop. Again, this is a logical alternative. But it is wrong. If the person who says is the brother, eight years of age, You will correct it automatically, bought this at the shop. And the girl, you will hear the word boot (or pot) which is correct. She could not see the written word to confuse her. Speaking candidly Chris Shumway told us the story. For the time in which the child begins to go to school he or she should know the correct choice of the past in hundreds of cases, and only basic school you need an advanced controlled using them and practice tests, for example. In the textbook of English that I use, there are almost four full pages of lists of irregular verbs that change and those who do nothing. But these books can not provide any rule, because it does not exist. It is basically a matter of memorizing, experience and practice. The simple past in English is really simple: usually it’s a single Word that serves for all people.
