Past Tense of COME, Form of Verbs, Learn English Grammar

The past tense of the verb “come” is “came”, spelled with an ‘a’. The verb “come” has an irregular past tense form as it does not accept the addition of “-ed” or “-d”. What is more puzzled for second and/or foreign learners of English is that the past participle of the verb “come” goes back to the root form “come”, and not “came”.

 

Past Tense of LEAD, Form of Verbs, Learn English Grammar

The past tense of the verb lead is led, not lead. One reason for the confusion might be that a similar verb, read, has an infinitive that's spelled the same as the past tense. But with lead, that's not how things are.

The past tense of the verb “read” is “read”, spelled the same but pronounced differently - it is pronounced as ‘red’. The verb “read” has an irregular past tense form as it does not accept the addition of “-ed” or “-d”. The past participle of the verb “read” is the same as the past form “read” which is pronounced as ‘“red”.
