The main points from the class were:

  • We spend more time in class focusing on irregular verbs that regular verbs
  • All regular verbs are spelled with  ‘ed’ at the end
  • We need to remember how to pronounce this suffix. There are three ways:
  • If a verb ends with a  t  or  d  sound we pronounce an extra syllable:  uhd
  • If a verb ends with a vowel sound or a voiced consonant sound we pronounce  d
  • If a verb ends with an unvoiced consonant sound we pronounce  t
  • It’s important not to mix up  d  and  t. If you do, you can end up with a different word, e.g. played > plate, which can result in miscommunication
