  4. 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.

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

  6. 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.
