Subject: Hanged vs. hung
As part of my coursework for an upper-division course titled "The English
Language," I am currently attempting to discover how the word _hang_ is
currently being used in standard English.
During my research, however, I've encountered one problem: What is the proper
way to write the transitive and intransitive simple past tense forms of the
verb _hang_? Is it _hanged_ or _hung_? I appreciate any help that anyone can
give me with this.
