                       THE PRINCIPLE PARTS OF VERBS :
Every verb has many different
forms.  All of these different forms of a
verb are made from just three parts.  
The three parts of any verb are called the principle parts.
The principal parts of a verb
are the ‘present’, the ‘past’, and the ‘past participle’.
PRESENT                        PAST             PAST PARTICIPILE
Walk                               walked                  (have)
walked
Print                               printed                  (have) printed
Carry                              carried                   (have)
carried
The present part of the verb
is its present tense.  Add – s or –
es  to form the singular. The present
part used with will or shall forms the future tense.
The past part of the verb is
its past tense.  Every verb that forms
its past tense by adding – ed   or – d to the present form is a regular
verb.  Most English verbs are regular.
The past participle is used
with helping verbs to make other forms of the verb.  Here are some examples.
Has walked           
had walked           
will have walked   
shall have walked
Have walked  
was walked 
has been walked     
should have been walked
