I’m trying to figure out what the correct past tense form of “he bears the weight” would be.
Wiktionary says that “bear” has a simple past “bore” and a past participle “borne”, but I don’t understand when one is used instead of the other.
So, would the correct form be
He has bore the weight
He has borne the weight
It would also be helpful if I could see example sentences for “borne” and “bore” to illuminate the distinction.
Bore is the past tense, borne is the past participle. The past participle is used in the present perfect construction He has borne.
