What Is Suppletion? On *Goed and on Went in Modern English

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The term ‘suppletion’ is appropriate for went/*goed, but only if that term is taken to be an informal descriptive term that hides a rich set of phonological and morphosyntactic properties that underlie each of went and *goed taken separately. No direct blocking relation between went and *goed is called for. The notion of verbal theme vowel is central.
