Curiosities of the Past Tense
If it’s Drive, Drove, Driven, but Thrive, Throve, Thrived (or rarely Thriven), why isn’t it Arrived, Arrove, Arriven, instead of Arrive, Arrived, Arrived? Why too is it Live, Lived, Lived and not Live, Love, Liven?
Then there is Dive, Dived, Dived. “Dove” may be popular, but it’s still incorrect, and frankly deplorable. Think how silly it would sound to say “Today I Dive, yesterday I Dove, and I have Diven all my life since the age of three.”
