    The verb "to show" has two different perfect forms, namely shown and showed.
    Which one is more formal? Have they got other regional or social nuances? Which would you use for a manual or handbook?

    Hi knarr

    There's a previous thread here: shown or showed ?

    I found it by putting showed shown into Dictionary & Thread title search at the top of the page.
