What is the past form of the verb “to weed eat”?

Is it “weed ate” as in “Yesterday we weed ate the tall grass next to the fence.”?

“ate weeds” sounds like I was out there on my hands and knees chewing like a goat. No, that’s not right. The device I was using IS a weed-eater. So I’m thinking like hammer. Hammer is a noun and a verb. We hammered yesterday. We weed-eated/weed-ate yesterday.

Yep, funny how we can make anything a verb!

I say weed-eated. Using the tool to create the verb.

But I do reckon that thar term is a regional word.

Just skip it and say

“Yesterday we cultivated the lawn near the fence line.” That’ll make your neighbors think you are real uppity.

You cannot conjugate the name, so it has to stay weed eat, add the ed to the name of the tool.

yep, just add -ed

form verb weed eat

I have never heard the term, “to weed eat”. It is not a verb as such and is incorrect english. Therefore there is no past tense. We used the weadeater to cut the grass, maybe and tomorrow we will buy a goat that will eat weeds.

I agree with the first answer.Everyone I know uses the term “weed-eated” I’m laughing so hard right now because I have never read the words “weed-eated” only heard or said them. It’s so funny to read it. I don’t think hick is the word for it. redneck comes to mind.

If you’ve ever used the term ” weed-eated “. you might be a redneck! haha soooo funny.

I’d sidestep it: “Yesterday we took the weed-eater to the tall grass next to the fence.” But that’s just me. “Weed-ate” might get a lot of play in the suburbs.

How long since “we eated weeds yesterday?

Texted. It sounds more like you are making a “d” sound rather than a “t” sound when pronouncing the word. Not really pronounced as two syllables, though sometimes is.
