  • English Grammar -

    Mary snuck out of her room as soon as her parents went to sleep.

    would this be correct?

  • English Grammar -

    sneaked, not "snuck"

  • English Grammar -

    Yes, it's correct. You could also say "Mary sneaked . . ."

    As you can see in this dictionary entry, both sneaked and snuck are correct forms of the past tense.

    Boy! How's that for letting slang take over??!! I guess we can expect "drug" to become a new past tense form for "drag"!!

  • English Grammar -

    I checked my 30-year-old Webster's Third New International Dictionary (Unabridged) and it states that "snuck" is dialectical.

    This is a great example of our ever-changing language.

    Check the interesting usage note in this dictionary.
