Recently, I stumbled on your Web site while reading the essay "verb" at wikipedia.org. Great work! I wish that we had the Internet and your conjugation site when I was in school.
I immediately looked up "lie," "lay," and "lie." I found the first two but not the third:
lie, lied, lying - to fib
(according to merriamwebster.com)
Is "lie" present and I just missed it?
The following definition appears on your page about "lie" as in "lie down":
- Tell an untruth; pretend with intent to deceive

In Canada one of our patriots was hanged for treason. It is known that Riel was hanged, it is rumoured that he was hung. Any thing that is held up by twine, rope or string is hanged. If it is hung that is just plain icky. As in "the stocking were hung by the chimney with care".

I found a dictionary "Chicago Dictionary", I don't really remember the edition and where it was printed, which says that "work" is an irregular verb (work - wrought- wrought)and in a web page don't know the adrress that says that it is (work - work - work). Is that true? I'm an English teacher and I had never found a dictionary which said that before. I'm really interested in having an answer for this. Can you help me, please? As far as I know it is a mistake. Answer please! Thank you.
My terrible feeling is carrying over.

Today I was reading a commentary from a very well read fellow who used the word "learnt". In my English learning background that seemed, well, rather unlearned. So I checked into it. I have Microsoft Word, which was no help, because it gave both instances as correct. Next I used Webster's online dictionary. It indicated that "learnt" was the English version of the past tense of "learn". Then I came upon your website, and, unless I missed it, "learned" is not a proper use of the past tense of "learn".
Please address this for those of us who have learned/learnt that one or the other may be more correct. In my experience "learnt" is used infrequently, in comparison to "learned".
Thank you very much for this very, very useful tool. You've been quite generous in sharing the result of your great effort.
All the best for 2012!!

The passive of the verb referring to death by hanging is 'hanged' in English. There is no reference to this on your site.
I am delighted to find your site and I have shared it on facebook. Thank you for keeping English alive and properly conjugated! I
