Just plain verbs.

negative non-past:
type 1: -う+あない [e.g. かく -> かかない]
    [exception, for true う verbs: -う+わない, e.g. かう -> かわない]
type 2: -る+ない [たべる -> たべない]
irregular: しない, こない

negative past:
type 1: -ない+なかった [きく -> きかなかった]
type 2: same [たべる -> たべなかった]
irregular: しなかった, こなかった

past (the tricky one):
type 1:
    -く -> いた [きく -> きいた, except: いく -> いった]
    -ぐ -> いだ [およぐ -> およいだ]
    -む, -ぶ, -ぬ -> んだ [すむ -> すんだ]
    -う, -つ, -る -> った [かう -> かった]
    -す -> した [はなす -> はなした]
type 2: -る+た [たべる -> たべた]
irregular: した, きた

Of course, the pattern for plain past is the same as with the て-form, except with a different vowel. And it's so completely not burned into my language center yet.

Lame, pathetic excuse for example sentences:
