How to Pronounce -ed in English

There are three ways to pronounce the final -ed of regular verbs in the simple past tense. This pronunciation is determined by the final sound* of the verb in the infinitive: Is it a voiced consonant, an unvoiced consonant, or a vowel sound?

  1. For verbs ending in d and t the final -ed is pronounced /Id/ as in the final two letters of the word did. Note that here the -e is not silent and this final -ed sound adds another syllable to the end of the verb.

  2. After unvoiced sounds such as/ p, k, f, sʃ  ,θ/ the final -ed is pronounced like /t/ as in the word cat. Note that the -e remains silent.

  3. After voiced consonants such as /bð , g, v, zʒ, dʒ , m, n, ŋ, l, r/ the final -ed sound is pronounced like /d/ as in good. Note that the -e remains silent. The final -ed is also pronounced like the d in good after all vowel sounds (the -e remains silent too).
This chart may help you remember the rules above.
