Građenje

Treba naglasiti da u engleskom jeziku postoje pravilni i nepravilni glagoli od kojih obrazujemo prošlo vreme. Kod pravilnih glagola prošlo vreme dobija se dodavanjem nastavka -ed: work - worked, live - lived, play - played. Kod nepravilnih glagola, prošlo vreme je zaseban oblik koji se uči napamet: go - went, write - wrote, know - knew...
