(Collective names are usually followed by a singular verb) If you associate two names with and, with or with, the verb should match the name in front of those words. This means that if the noun that passes before, as well as, with or with the singular, the verb should be singular. If the noun in front of these expressions is plural, the verb should be plural. stop – stop; Plan – planned; rub — grated. 1. If the past of participation did not end in -ed (z.B.

For other irregular verbs, the three forms are different, for example Wake – woke/woken: I`ll wake you up. (infinitely) I woke up in the middle of the night, the baby woke up. (past participates – perfect) I was awakened by a loud noise (the past participated – passively) What verbs were and were forms of verb.
