Irregular verbs are verbs in past tense that aren't created simply by adding ed. Their are no rules to help students know which are irregular, or how they are formed. All the past perfect verbs represent actions that occurred before other actions in the past. Thus we can say the past perfect is 'the past in the past', or the past viewed from another past viewpoint. In the past perfect continuous structure, the omission of either 'had' and 'been' or the failure to add 'ing' to the main form are the major errors with this structure.
