I've had a thought today about strange paradox's in the English language, mostly because I was faced with some odd tensing issues in Italian. I went to Siena yesterday, I thought about this and said to my boss, (literal translation) "I go-ed to Siena yesterday." but this got me thinking... What is the present tense of went? I realise there is a certain euphonious issue in saying "I gone", but is that actually all it is? Or is this one of those odd hangovers from middle English? I would be greatly appointed if I was to discover some clarity on this. I shall return interfrastically.
