     Let’s be honest, jumped is a stupid word. It’s not “swimmed”, it’s not “runned”, it’s swam and ran. Grammatically, it would make more sense if “jumped” was “jamp”. Here are some reasons why, it lines up with other verbs, it’s easier to say, it’s very clear what you’re trying to say, and there are many more reasons why “jamp” should be a word. 

     Have you ever said a word and thought, “That doesn’t sound right at all.” If you think about “jumped”, it doesn’t even make sense. A lot of past-tense verbs drop the “-ed” and use an “A” as the vowel. Logically, it makes sense to make this word just like it’s verb counterparts such as ran or swam. 
   

     Thank you for reading the description on why this word matters. With your help, we can get this word officially in the dictionary and in widespread use. Please share with your friends and family. Together, we can tackle “jumped”.
