Re: The 3 double past participles.

Buenas tardes Inma,

Which do you find is the more commonly used of the two forms? Is it down to personal choice as to whether one uses the regular or irregular form?

Gracias

Hola Clara

For the 3 cases with double past participles:

Freír (to fry) = freído/frito

Imprimir (to print) = imprimido/impreso

Proveer (to provide) = proveído/provisto

they are all used and accepted, however, when their function in the sentence is that of an adjective, the irregular forms are more commonly used, for example:

"He dejado los papeles impresos en la mesa" or "Ayer comí patatas fritas".

Hope this helps.

Saludos

Inma
