Mensagem:  As far as I know, according to some texts I´ve read, that "th" stands for the past tense (that "ed" added to the verb)... Eliseu is right. Nevertheless, I can't explain why it was used in English language. If someone happens to know, please tell us. Eliseu is right in what? The "th" became an "s" and that is in the present tense. Why a "th" sound becomes an "s" sound? Why there is açucar e não asucar? I bet there was no such thing as spoketh, wenteth , saweth. Time for the experts to say their thing.
