Before I was a college-dropout, I was a linguistics major and find great delight in regional variations in language. While making flash cards for one of English students, I realized that the past tense of knit can either be knit or knitted.
I was wondering if you good people would indulge me and reply back whether you "knit a scarf yesterday" or if you "knitted a scarf yesterday" and where you're from.
Here's how I conjugate it in the past tense:
I knit a scarf yesterday.
You knit a scarf yesterday.
He/She knitted a scarf yesterday.
We knitted scarves yesterday.
They knit scarves yesterday.
There's no real rhyme or reason to it, just a speech pattern. Who knows how my brain decided that... I'm from New Orleans and we're not exactly known for our consistent grammar.
