Hi linguists,

Here's one last stab at this "spring-sprang-sprung" business.

While we all understand that "sprang" is a simple past of "spring" and, even 
though "sprung" is used as a past participle, many dictionaries list 
"sprung" as the SIMPLE PAST as well as the past participle.

Respectfully submitted,
