It is used principally to describe events in the past, although it also has some other uses. Regular English verbs form the simple past in -ed; however there are a few hundred irregular verbs with different forms. The term "simple" is used to distinguish the syntactical construction whose basic form uses the plain past tense alone, from other past tense constructions which use auxiliaries in combination with participles, such as the past perfect and past progressive. Simple Past (Past Simple) The simple past expresses an action in the past taking place once, never, several times. It can also be used for actions taking place one after another or in the middle of another action. Form of Simple Past | Positive | Negative | Question | no differences | I spoke. | I did not speak. | Did I speak? | For irregular verbs, use the past form (see list of irregular verbs, 2nd column). For regular verbs, just add “ed”. Exceptions in Spelling when Adding ‘ed’ Exceptions in spelling when adding ed | Example | after a final e only add d | love – loved | final consonant after a short, stressed vowel or l as final consonant after a vowel is doubled | admit – admitted travel – travelled | final y after a consonant becomes i | hurry – hurried | Use of Simple Past * action in the past taking place once, never or several times Example: He visited his parents every weekend. * actions in the past taking place one after the other Example:
