Verb

drug

  1. Template:US: Past tense of drag.
    You look like someone drug you behind a horse for half a mile.

Usage notes

In British English, this is incorrect; the correct past tense of drag is dragged.

Random House says that "drug" is "nonstandard" as the past tense of drag. Merriam-Webster once ruled that "drug" in this construction was "illiterate." Now "drug" has been upgraded to "dialect." The lexicographers of New World, American Heritage and Oxford pretend they never heard of anything that was drug in.

The correct past tense as stated above is dragged.
