EATATE




Common Stumbling Blocks - Peculiar Constructions - Misused Forms.

Don't confound the two. Eat is present, ate is past. "I eat the
bread" means that I am continuing the eating; "I ate the bread" means
that the act of eating is past. Eaten is the perfect participle, but
often eat is used instead, and as it has the same pronunciation (et) of
ate, care should be taken to distinguish the past tense, I ate from
the perfect I have eaten (eat).
