V2 Past Simple

In English, verbs are divided into two groups as regular and irregular verbs in terms of their inflection, according to tenses. In verbs called regular verbs, the octet ‘–ed’ is added to the verbs’ end, creating the V2 and V3 states of the verbs. In irregular verbs, the situation is in the form of different word spellings. But in the verb ‘lie’ the problem is slightly different. So much so that the verb ‘lie’ is regular if it is used in its first sense and irregular if it is used in its other purpose. The V2 version of the verb ‘lie,’ which is an irregular verb, is used as ‘lay.’
