Past tense of break?
The past perfect tense is created with the auxiliary verb had and a past participle. Examples: The past perfect tense of walk is had walked. (Walk is a regular verb, so the past tense and past participle are the same.) The past perfect tense of break is had broken. (Break is an irregular verb. The past tense is broke, and the past participle is broken.)
The verb 'had' + 'break' is incorrect. The verb 'had' is the past tense of the verb 'have'. The verb 'break' is a present tense verb. The past tenses of the verb to break are broke and broken. Using the auxiliary verb 'had' + 'broken' is the past perfect tense. Note: The verbs 'broke' and 'broken' also function as adjectives, words used to describe a noun.
