D) They did it, done they? (e) What did they do? (f) She did it, did she? (g) Did you have any luck? (h) I didn’t see any. (i) Where done they go? (j) They done it last year. 3 Here are some sentences in Somerset dialect. Work out what the rule is for using the two different types of past-tense verb forms. I did go there every day.
