He has gone mad.

What kind of verb is 'gone' here?

It depends on what you mean by "kind", i.e., in what way you are talking about classifying verbs.

You already know from vsuresh that 'has gone' is the present perfect tense, but it's also an intransitive verb and it's also an inchoative verb in the given context.

Here, "gone", past participle of the verb go, makes present perfect tense with "has" preceding it.

I'd say that it is a main verb in that sentence.

Quelle différence entre : He is gone mad et He has gone mad.

Y a t il une nuance entre les deux.

You are supposed to post in English in here.

"He is gone mad." - Not possible.

"He has gone mad." - Yes.

teal grape 596He is gone mad

If you see this, it was probably written a long time ago.

to go mad takes the auxiliary have in modern English.

teal grape 596He has gone mad.

This is the modern form.


If you are interested in 'is gone' vs 'has gone', that's a different matter.

is gone ~ is not here (now)
has gone ~ left; went somewhere else (earlier)

Just a slight difference.

Il faut un point d’interrogation à la fin d’une question, même en français.

Please post in English. Even if your English isn't perfect, we don't bite. Emotion: wink
