Robert Lowth and the Strong Verb System.
van Ostade, Ingrid Tieken-Boon
Language Sciences, v24 n3-4 p549-69 May-Jul 2002
Traces the origin of the grammatical rule that strong verbs should distinguish between past tense and past participle forms. The rule, credited to Robert Lowth, did not in fact originate from Lowth nor did it reflect his usage as found in his private unpublished letters. (Author/VWL)
