Past Participle

The Past Participle is simply the past tense form of regular verbs. Irregular verbs take on different forms that follow no consistent rules.

These verb forms can act either as verbs or as adjectives:
Verb: After answering his door, Coleridge had forgotten the remainder of his dream.
Adjective: The old, forgotten artist died lonely and bereft.
