Finished watching the lesson, now it’s time to take a test to see how much have you learned from this lesson.
The past simple tense and the past particle of all regular verbs end in -ed.
- Base verb – Wash
- Past simple – Washed
- Past participle – Washed
There are three ways of pronouncing the ed:-
1) /id/ – If the last sound to the word is /d/ or /t/ then the -ed will sound like /id/
2) /t/ – If the last sound of the word is unvoiced like /p/ , /f/, /s/, /ch/, /sh/ and /k/ then the -ed sound is /t/.
3) /d/ – For all the words that end with – ed and are voiced then the -ed is pronounced as /d/.
Hope you enjoy the lesson and keep practicing to get the right pronunciation
