Transcript of Copy of Regular Past Tense Verb Rules

All regular past tense verbs
should end with “ed.”



REGULAR PAST TENSE VERB RULES
If a regular verb ends with “
e
” we add only “
-d
.”
Rule #1:

For example:
like +
d
= like
d
live +
d
= live
d
arrive +
d
= arrive
d
date +
d
= date
d
save +
d
= save
d
If a regular verb has more than one syllable and ends in
consonant
+
vowel
+
consonant
, we double the final consonant only if the final syllable is stressed and add
-ed
Rule #5:
If a one syllable regular verb ends in
consonant
+
vowel
+
consonant
double the final consonant and add
-ed
Rule #3:
If a regular verb ends with“y,” use the “i” rule: What does the “y”sound like? If it sounds like
“i” in Spanish or English (ee or ay), change the “y” to “i” and add “ed.” If not, just add “ed”

For example:
hurry (sounds like ee)– y + i + ed = hurried

or
fry (sounds like ay) – y + i + ed = fried

or
stay (sounds like ey) + ed
= stayed
Rule #4:

For example:
Stop +
p
+
ed
= stop
ped
plan +
n
+
ed
= plan
ned

rob +
b
+
ed
= rob
bed
beg +
g
+
ed
= beg
ged

For example:
preFER +
r
+
ed
= prefer
red

regRET +
t
+
ed
= regret
ted
deFer +
r
+
ed
= defer
red
reFER +
r
+
ed
= refer
red
"It's all about the end"
...but there are rules.
Rule # 2
If the verb ends in a consonant "
y"
, change the "
y"
to "
i"
and add "
-ed"
If the verb ends in a vowel plus "
y
" don´t change the "
y
" and just add "
-ed
"


For example
Pray +
ed
= pray
ed
stay +
ed
= stay
ed
destroy +
ed
= destroy
ed
play +
ed
= play
ed
enjoy

+
ed
= enjoy
ed
Pronunciation for Regular Verbs (
-ed
)
If the verb base ends in a
voiced sound (b, v, g, z, j, th, l, m, n, r )
, then the
-ed
ending sounds like “
d
”.

For example:
mo
v
ed
retur
n
ed
st
ay
ed
stud
i
ed
marr
i
ed
If the verb base ends in a
voiceless sound (p, f, k, s, sh, ch, th)
, then the
–ed
ending sounds like “
t
”.

For example:
wor
k
ed
drop
p
ed
fini
sh
ed
divor
c
ed
stop
p
ed
If the verb base ends in a “
t
” or “
d
” sound already, then the
–ed
ending sounds like “
id


For example:
star
t
ed
gradua
t
ed
visi
t
ed
separa
t
ed
da
t
ed
atten
d
ed


For example
Dry (y -->
i
) +
ed
= dr
ied
carry (y -->
i
) +
ed
= carr
ied
study (y -->
i
) +
ed
= stu
ied
marry (y -->
i
) +
ed
= marr
ied
try (y -->
i
) +
ed
= tr
ied
