    Regular Verbs:

    • These are the most common type of verb.
    • They follow a normal pattern when you change them to the past tense or past participle.
    • For example, the verb “walk”:
      • Present tense: I walk
      • Past tense: I walked
      • Past participle: I have walked
    • The endings (-ed, -d, etc.) are predictable and follow the same rules.

    Irregular Verbs:

    • These are verbs that don’t follow the normal patterns when you change them.
    • They have unique past tense and past participle forms that you just have to memorize.
    • For example, the verb “go”:
      • Present tense: I go
      • Past tense: I went
      • Past participle: I have gone
    • The past tense and past participle forms are completely different from the present tense.

    The main difference is that regular verbs have predictable endings, while irregular verbs have unique, unpredictable forms that you have to memorize. Regular verbs follow the rules, while irregular verbs are exceptions to the rules.

    Does this help explain the key difference between regular and irregular verbs in simple, easy-to-understand terms? Let me know if you need any clarification or have additional questions!
