I clearly dont know English as I put "drunk" not "drank".. for those that also do the same mistake..
drank is the simple past tense:
"I drank the wine yesterday."
drunk is the past participle, used in the perfect and pluperfect tenses of the verb.
"I had drunk the wine before you arrived."
"Drunk," as a verb, rather than an adjective, is used for the present and past perfect tenses of "to drink" (i.e. "have drunk" and "had drunk"). See http://www.verb2verbe.com/conjugation/english-verb/drink.aspx.
I'm a native English speaker and I really struggle with drank vs. drunk (not to mention"dranken/drunken LOL). I put "You've drank to much" and was marked wrong. I understand that this is not "proper" English but does anyone else think this is a who vs whom situation where the modern colloquial English should be accepted? As in, duo usually will accept "who" as an English translation even when in proper English the correct translation should be "whom".
I think this is an instance where language is changing very quickly. Strong verbs (the ones that are conjugated by changes in the vowels and sometimes the consonants, rather than by adding "-ed" to the end of the word) seem to be transitioning rather rapidly to weak verbs.
This has been underway for a while. Generally, both strong and weak conjugations of these verbs are acceptable now, but I notice more and more that writers (including reporters for major newspapers and the like) are using weak conjugations rather than strong.
"To drink" is a partial exception. The strong conjugations (in this case, drink/drank/have drunk) are still the only "correct" form. A while ago, my sister, a university professor, noted that while her students were not using the strong conjugations of many verbs anymore, this tended to occur mostly with verbs that they would be likely to use infrequently - so that, for instance spin/spun/have spun has become spin/spinned/spinned.
My sister, said, however, that her students were having no trouble with drink/drank/have drunk. Based not only on your comment, but anecdotal info from another, relatively youngish, person, I think that is changing. We will probably eventually end up with drink/drinked/drinked, but right now there seems to be uncertainty about how to conjugate "to drink."
Personally, I think this is a pity, as I like strong verbs and their anomalous conjugations. Language does change, however, and we need, eventually, to change with it.
This phrase is here to teach us present perfect tense. Had drank, Have drunk. Compare these two sentences. I have drunk the whole glass of water. I drank the whole glass of water. The end result is the same and the glass is empty. The second option would probably be used more often by most of us. The question is... How many of these have the drunks drunk before they got drunk?
