An irregular verb is a verb that has some forms not following the regular verbs conjugation patterns.

For example, in English an irregular verb does not take on the "-d" or "-ed" ending for the Past Simple and Past Participle forms. In some case, the conjugation does not change the spelling of the verb, whereas in others, it changes completely.

For example:

Present Simple past Past participle
quit quit quit
bite bit bitten
saw (wood) sawed sawn
ride rode ridden
