Jill did not allow last game to Liz.

Or

Jill did not allowed last game to Liz.

Do we always use the infinitive form of the verb with "did"?

  • The auxiliary verb "do" obligatorily requires the verb that follows it to be an infinitive; in this case 'allow'. "Did" is the past tense of the verb "do", so the reference to past time is clear. Btw, is there a reason why you have omitted the determiner 'the' before 'last'? – BillJ Sep 12 '16 at 11:42

The use of did instead of do already marks the sentence as being in the past, so the main verb doesn't need changing and stays in its base form.

You have use simple present verb with did.You can't use past/past participle verb with 'did'.As example 'I did go'

    Sorry, but that's incorrect. The auxiliary verb "do" obligatorily requires the verb that follows it to be an infinitive; in this case 'allow'. That is not the simple present, though it is spelled the same. – BillJ Sep 12 '16 at 12:49
