Oh, very yes. It's a common part of my wordplay (for want of a better term for that subset of compulsive tics that involve weirding language) to form irregular versions of perfectly regular verbs and nouns. I have also been known to fixate on archaic formations, the most popular being |eyren| as the plural of |egg|, along with |childer| as the plural of |child| and several others. The use of |y-| to form perfects is not unknown. Paul
