This chapter is about the regular verbs in English. The English regular verbs are all conjugated the same way and thus easy to conjugate.
Regular verbs are all conjugated the same in the present tense.
Only the 3rd person singular changes from the basic form of a regular verb in the present simple tense. The table below shows you these rules.
Most regular verbs just add '-s' to the root of the verb for the 3rd person singular.
|Verbs that end with a vowel other than 'e' get a '-es'.||
|Verbs that end with '-s', '-ch', '-sh', '-x', and '-z' get a '-es'.||
|Verbs that end in consonant and '-y' changes to 'ies'.||
|Verbs that end in vowel and '-y' gets '-s'.||
Note that the examples contain regular and irregular verbs.
The rules of the past tense for the regular verbs are the same for all these verbs.
The past simple rule: infinitive verb + ed
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. Which are shown in the table below.
|Verbs that end in '-e', only get '-d'.||
|Verbs that end in consonant and '-y' changes to 'ied'.||
|Verbs that end in vowel and '-y' get '-ed'.||
The past participle of regular verbs in English can be formed by adding '-d' or '-ed' to the root of the verb.
Root of the verb + '-d' / '-ed'
