Topic 15: Irregular Past Participle Verb Forms (3) 不規則的過去分詞 Lied? Lay? Lain? Laid?

學生常常混淆以上幾個,其實它們歸在不規則過去分詞的第三及四類:
第三類:=過去式
e.g. Buy -> bought -> bought 
Lay (鋪) -> laid -> laid 
Lie (説謊) -> lied -> lied

第四類:完全不規律變化
(即不納入上幾回及上述所談及的一至三類)
e.g. Lie (躺)-> lay -> lain
Fly -> flew -> flown 

*'Lay' 既是動詞原形(解作鋪),又可作 'lie'的過去式(解作躺)
