Right, so what's the correct expression, wise up or wisen up, or both? And in the past, is it wised or wisened?

Hi,

Present = wise up. eg Wise up, stupid!

Past = wised up. eg When he wised up, it was too late.

It's an informal and idiomatic expression. It is often used rudely.

Please say 'Please'. It makes the volunteers here feel happy. Thank you.

That hits my ear so badly. Wisen... It feels like it should be wisen and wisened.
Wisen up
