Vocab stupid question

  1. Apr 23, 2005 #1
    I was writing an essay, and i realized...i don't know how to use the verb, "seek" in past tense. I looked in the dictionary, and it only had "to seek" "seeker" "seeking" "seeks", but no "seeked" or even "sake". What is the past tense for "seek"?

    One of those less-than-obvious things. The past tense of 'seek' is 'sought'. :smile:

    I once sitted down at a table on the beach. I was talking with a Swedish woman about the preterite of the English language. We maked jokes of all the words we could think of and I finally knowed why English is such a difficult language to learn. After we drunked several cervesas the conversation becomed hilarious. I can't remember much after that. I sayed something like "When I pass by strangers I always wash their hands." I think there ised a misinterpretation there, but I can't really be certain.

    Why did I call myself Huckleberry? Simple, it was the first thing that popped into my mind. Did you expect anything less?

    Nobody wants to keep this thread alive forever. It's enough work keeping THE thread alive long enough so that I get the chance to kill it. :biggrin: This one is just a one night stand.

    Apparently not. :biggrin:
    I probably should have just left it at that, but I wouldn't want you to think that I was ignoring you. :wink:

    You should hear my Spanish. I was once teased by a group of Spanish speaking children in an indian village. I think that this is what they were saying...

    Tres tristes tigres tragaban trigo en un trigal.
    It means, Three sad tigers were swallowing wheat on a wheat field.

    But I just stood there with a stupid smile on my face, like this :tongue: And they all laughed, like this :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
