No never, never, use that word!!! DON'T FORGET IT!!!


<edited to remove about 14 instances of the word "never" and about 120 exclamation marks.>

There is a distinction between regular and irregular verbs because irregular verbs do not usually follow the conjugation rules for the simple past tense (baked vs. made)

We classify them to avoid confusion when learning the verbs.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

There was a complete list of English words in the internet with the (v) accompaning each verb .....that is two years ago.
x v. to mark with an x: xed, x'd, x-ing, x'ing.

x-ray v. to examine, treat, or photograph with Xrays.

There's a downloadable text list at the end.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Don't be so (removed by mod), Mr. Micawber. First, as there is no 'official' dictionary of the English language, no single dictionary will have every word in it. Secondly, a list of EVERY word in the English language is hardly useful if you are interested only in verbs.

As for the original question, I have not been able to find such a list myself, but I haven't given up yet. Just to throw a twist at you, though... what do you do about compund verbs? "To get up" is clearly in no way related (in meaning) to "to get". These are going to make compiling such a list a rather daunting task, at the very least.
