Common Mistakes in English Grammar

Bended vs. Bent

One common mistake in English grammar is using the word "bended" instead of "bent" as the past tense and past participle of the verb "bend".

Correct: He bent his knees to pick up the fallen book.

Incorrect: He bended his knees to pick up the fallen book.

The word "bend" is an irregular verb, which means it does not follow the regular rule of adding "-ed" to form the past tense or past participle. Instead, the correct form is "bent" in both cases.

Another example:

Correct: The tree was bent by the strong wind.

Incorrect: The tree was bended by the strong wind.

Using "bended" instead of "bent" is a common error that can easily be corrected by remembering the correct form of the verb.
