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?

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!
In some soils, mounds made earlier wash down, thus making it necessary to remound in the fall.

Earlier in the week the menfolk would go to the graveyard and clean off the creepvine and shrubs and remound the sunken graves.

The agricultural production system is based almost entirely on the intensive cultivation of sweet potato in small, lightly composted mounds (mondo). New gardens are begun every 3.2 years on average, although women may continue to remound old gardens for ten years or more.

[W]omen running the memorial associations needed another vital resource beyond money: manpower. Quite literally, this meant male power in two areas that conventions of the day dictated as the responsibility of men: engineers to design project and agents to conduct business and organize heavy labor to disinter bodies, remound old graves, and build new cemeteries.
And when Richard Gregg says “although it is not a panacea non-violent resistance is an effective social instrument whereby we may remound the world,” and when Joan Bondurant says it is “the solution to the problem of method which anarchism has consistently failed to solve,” we will begin to listen with attention.

If the intellectuals do not thoroughly remound their world outlook, they will remain different from the workers and peasants in their viewpoint, position and feelings, and will be like square pegs in round holes.
