List of Verbs

You have learned that a verb is a word that tells something about the subject in a sentence. In the English language, every Principal verb has three forms, as: Present Form, Past Form and Past Participle Form. Notice the forms of the following verbs:

List of Verbs

Present…PastP.P. Form







In the above list, the verbs Arise, Come and Give have formed their Past and Past Participle Form by changing the vowels in the body of the word without adding any suffix. They are called Strong Verbs.

On the other hand, the verbs Act, Hear, and Feel have formed their Past and Past Participle Forms by adding d, ed or t to the Present forms with or without a vowel change in the body of the verb. They are called Weak Verbs.

Thus Verbs are divided into Strong and Weak Verbs according to the way in which they form their Past and Past Participles.

Note that the Present Form of a Verb is called Lexicon  (Dictionary)Form.

A list of Verbs with their three Forms is given below:
