Irregular verbs

This thesaurus file enables dtSearch to handle verb forms (irregular verbs, strong verbs, stem change verbs) that stemming may not, for example in English go, went, gone; run, ran; speak, spoke; drink, drank.

 

Irregular verbs listed in the sample files include those which may be listed as strong verbs and stem change verbs in various grammatical texts. Not all conjugations for each verb may be listed, if a verb follows regular verb patterns in most of the forms the dtSearch stemmer may handle those correctly without the need to have them included in the thesaurus, listing all verb conjugations may slow searches.
