Past Active Participle

Past Active Participle :

Participles also have no tense or mood. But they are used together with auxiliaries to form the progressive and perfect tenses and the passive voice.

The Present Participle refers to an action in the present or future.

The Present Active Participle is formed by adding ING to the basic form - accepting.

When a verb ends in a silent E, that letter is dropped before adding the ING : come - coming.

The Present Passive Participle is a compound form composed of being and the past participle.

The Past Participle refers to an action in the past. Since it is used in combination with auxiliary verbs to form the passive voice, the past participle is sometimes called the Passive Participle.

The Past Active Participle is normally the same as the past tense form of the verb.

For regular verbs this is the ED form : accepted.

The Past Passive Participle is a compound form combining been and the past participle.
