BBC History : Events / The Blitz

People in Coventry walk to work past smouldering piles of rubble after a bombing raid in 1940.

People in Coventry walk to work past smouldering piles of rubble after a bombing raid in 1940.

"Blitz, the German word for 'lightning', was applied by the British press to the tempest of heavy and frequent bombing raids carried out over Britain in 1940 and 1941. This concentrated, direct bombing of industrial targets and civilian centres began with heavy raids on London on 7 September 1940 during what became known as the Battle of Britain. Hitler and Hermann Goering's plans to destroy the Royal Air Force ahead of an invasion of Britain were failing and, also in response to a RAF raid on Berlin, they changed their tactics to the sustained bombing of civilian targets."

"12 Years a Slave" trailer - English (French subtitles)

"[...] Solomon Northup was a free black man living in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. in 1841, when he was coaxed by “two gentlemen of respectable appearance” to travel to Washington, D.C. for employment. While there, he was beaten and sold into slavery, with his captors claiming he was a fugitive slave. He spent twelve years in bondage with three different masters in Louisiana before he was finally rescued — a feat which involved secretly smuggling a letter to his family and enlisting the help of the New York governor.

From "Text to Text | ‘Twelve Years a Slave,’ and ‘An Escape That Has Long Intrigued Historians’ " by Michael GONCHAR and Tom MARSHALL (the New York Times - October 2013)

Pour mieux manipuler la formation du prétérit et reconnaître le participe passé de verbes irréguliers je te propose un petit jeu de piste: munis-toi de ta liste des verbes irréguliers, puis cherche :

* 5 formes verbales au prétérit irrégulierd'un même verbe (un auxiliaire):

--> 3 sont immédiatement suivies du participe passé d'un autre verbe (il s'agit de formes passives), parmi lesquels: 2 verbes irréguliers (qui suivent un seul auxiliaire, attention) / 2 verbes réguliers -facile : ils se finissent en ... ?!

* 2 autres formes verbales au préterit: 1 verbe irrégulier / 1 verbe régulier.

Alors ?? Tu veux vérifier si tes "découvertes" sont bien les bonnes ? N'hésite pas à venir en fin de cours ;)
