The word preterit means “past tense”
Background / Comments
This form of the word is the original form; it can also be spelled preterite. The word comes from Latin praeter (beyond, past, by). I think that back when I was taking languages that we used this word for the past tense.
The word showed up in the first half of the 1300s.
