Pronunciation: Regular past simple verbs. (-ed endings)

In English we do not usually pronounce the e in –ed endings.

The -ed ending is often pronounced /t/ or /d/. The difference between these endings is very small.

e.g. booked /t/ = (read this word like bookt);

e.g argued /d/ = (read this word as argud).

  • We pronounce the e in –ed where there is a t or d before it.

i.e. wanted (read this word like wantid);

i.e. ended (read this word as endid).

* With these verbs -ed=/Id/
