Leap (/li:p/) is an English word, meaning as a verb “to jump a large distance,” and as a noun meaning such a jump.[1]

Leap is an ambiregular verb — it has the third person form "leaps" (/li:ps/), the -ing form "leaping" (/li:pɪŋ(g)/) and a regular preterite and past participle "leaped" (/li:pt/), but also an irregular preterite and past participle "leapt" (/lept/). Note the pronunciation of the stem changes with the irregular form; in this regard, it is similar to keep, sleep, sweep and weep. The regular form is generally preferred in American English while the irregular form is generally preferred in British English.
