present, past and future

The simple past of regular verbs is formed by verb + ed :The boys jumped in the lake.The simple past of irregular verbs depends on the verb. To be is irregular. Compare:The boys are good. (Simple Present)The boys were good. (Simple Past)
To form the past tense of regular verbs, -ed is added to the end of the word.For example, 'laugh' becomes 'laughed'.With regular verbs, the simple past tense and the past participle forms are the same.Irregular verbs aren't as simple. There is no simple way like there is with regular verbs but rather you have to just learn the list of irregular verbs.An example of an irregular verb is 'eat'.The simple past is 'ate' whilst the past participle is 'eaten'.
A simple predicate is always a verb, but sometimes not all the verbs in a sentence are the simple predicate.
simple verb is singular but compound verb is formed from two verbs Exp:i was watching TV yesterdaywas watching is the compound verb
You have to learn the past tense form of irregular verbs as there is no simple way of remembering them.Unlike regular verbs, which all end with -ed in the past tense, the past tense of irregular verbs are all different.For example, the past tense of sing is sang and not singed.
