Irregular Verbs (C-Level) | Infinitive, Past, and Past Participle

This page lists about 200 irregular verbs in English. Irregular verbs are verbs that do not add -d or -ed to the infinitive (or base form) to create the past, the past participle, or both forms.

Verbs are included that have regular and irregular forms. For example, “learn” and “show” have both regular (learned, learned; showed, showed) and irregular (learnt, learnt; showed, showed or shown) past and past participle forms.

Obsolete or archaic verbs have been excluded from the list (e.g., atride, atrode, atridden; bethrow, bethrew, bethrown; hote, hight, hoten).
