Donal, thou wast wondering how to use "wast", wast thou? (Second person singular past tense).
I feel it should be pointed out that the old rule "i before e" is odd in that there are actually more words in English that are exception than there are words that obey it!
And Guest, his, hers, etc. are pronouns, just the possessive forms.
