Irregular Verbs

An irregular verb is a verb that does not follow the normal rules of conjugation. In English, the rule for regular verbs is simple: The suffix "ed" is appended to the verb for both the past tense and the past participle. But for irregular verbs, there is no rule. Sometimes the verb changes completely (sing, sang, sung), sometimes there is only a partial change (buy, bought, bought), and sometimes there is no change at all (cut, cut, cut).

*

Irregular Plurals

An irregular plural is a plural that does not follow the normal rules of English. The normal rule is to append "s", or if a word ends in "s" or "sh", then append "es".  Many irregular plurals are animals or fish, such as "sheep", "deer", "moose", "salmon", "tuna", etc. Words ending in "f" or "o" are often, but not always, irregular.

Marimba

The marimba is a musical instrument in the percussion family. Keys or bars (usually made of wood) are struck with mallets to produce musical tones. The keys are arranged as those of a piano, with the accidentals raised vertically and overlapping the natural keys (similar to a piano) to aid the performer both visually and physically.  The chromatic marimba was developed in southern Mexico and northern Guatemala from the diatonic marimba, an instrument whose ancestor was a type of balafon that African slaves built in Central America.  Modern uses of the marimba include solo performances, woodwind ensembles, marimba concertos, jazz ensembles, marching band (front ensembles), drum and bugle corps, and orchestral compositions. Contemporary composers have utilized the unique sound of the marimba more and more in recent years.
