I had an argument with some of my coworkers and I was wondering if anyone could give me a decisive answer to this question. What is the passive past of to pour? No, this is not a joke and it's not to make a funny. When I said it initially, it came quite naturally to me as pourn -I work in a coffee shop and was anthropomorphizing a pot of coffee in the first person. I can't find the full conjugation online. Can someone help?

I have never seen the past participle of pour expressed as pourn, but I think it could be useful in certain situations. The principle parts are regular: pour, pouring, poured, poured.

Since those asking and answering have used the word "pourn", it seems silly to me to state that it is not a word. Everyone knows the meaning and can use it in a sentence. The best wine was the last pourn wine.

It is not a word, and your final sentence is wrong.
