English citations of remound

verb form: preterite of remind[edit]

  • 1830, Filaret, “On the Tenses of Greek Verbs” in The Gentleman’s Magazine, and Historical Chronicle, ed. Sylvanus Urban, volume 100, part 2, page 125
    In English our common and regular past tense is formed in ed, as I received: this answers to the aorist in α. But many of our older verbs form their preterite on quite a different plan; such are, I saw, I wrote &c. changing the radical vowels: this irregular form is analogous to the aorist in ον. Lastly, we have not a few verbs in which both forms are in use, as I hanged, and I hung; I catched, and I caught; I beseeched, and I besought; I chid, and I chided: and this is parallel to the examples of Greek verbs with both forms of the aorist. […A] single English grammarian, who, on the ground of the varieties and redundancies above-mentioned, has exhibited the standard model of the English verb with two preterite tenses. Or what should we now think of the grammar which should run thus: 1. pret. I fighted, thou fightedst, &c. 2d pret. I fought, &c. And again, 1st pret. I reminded, &c. 2d pret. I remound?
  • 1918, The Judge (Judge Publishing Company), volume 75, page unknown
    I find — that is to say, I’ve found —
    That when one knows “sink, sank and sunken,”
    He soon is strenuously remound
    He mustn’t say “blink, blank and blunken.”
    And if it seems that he has thought
    From words one speaks as they are speken
    That what he thought was “wink, wank, wought,”
    He’ll squeak as ne’er before he’s squoken!
