Excerpt: Change and Rate of Change / The Story of English - Mario Pei

This quote a été ajouté par jfrkuang
The English verb, like all its Germanic cognates, is distinguished by the relative poverty of simple tenses and by the general division of the verbs into weak and strong. The strong verbs, far more characteristic than the weak, feature the ablaut change in the root vowel represented by sing, sang, sung. The story of ablaut (a German term, literally meaning "away-sound") is quite fascinating.
