Irregular Verbs: List of 90+ Common Irregular Verbs in English

Irregular Verbs! Following is a big list of irregular verbs in English from A to Z with ESL pictures to help you expand your vocabulary.

What are Irregular Verbs?

In English, most of verbs are turned into the past tense by adding ‘-ed’ to the end of a base form of the verb, they are called regular verbs.

Examples:

  • Play – played – played
  • Work – worked – worked
  • Talk – talked – talked

In contrast, some of English verbs don’t follow this rule when changing into the past tense. There’s also no rule for them. Those verbs are called irregular verbs.

Examples:

  • Go -went – gone
  • Do – did – done
  • See – saw – seen

Hello.

This is my first time to comment. I have noticed a little mistake regarding the table. Unless I get confused, you wrote bare form instead of writing base form. For the rest you did a wonderful job and it is very useful for our pupils duroing the class and outside school.

This table can be used as a reward to encourage best pupils or tjhose who make some progress in their learning.

Thanks ever so much.
