200 Most Common Irregular Verbs + Gerunds


Irregular verbs are those that usually don’t take the -ed ending for the Past Simple and Past Participle forms.

Sometimes, there may be the option to use -ed but that would only be due to modern changes in the language or the ‘British vs American’ English difference.
