(1) the simple form
English verbs have four principle forms or “parts”.
The simple form is the form that is found in a dictionary. It is the base form with no endings on it (no final –s, -ed, or –ing).
(2) the simple past
The simple past form ends –ed for regular verbs. Most verbs are regular, but many common verbs have irregular past forms. See the reference of irregular verbs that follows in Chart 2-4
(3) the past participle
The past participle also ends in –ed for regular verbs. Some verbs are irregular. It is in perfect tenses (Chapter 7) and the passive (Chapter 12).
(4) the present participle
The present participle ends in –ing (for both regular and irregular verbs). It is used in progressive tenses (e.g., the present progressive and the past progressive).
