Past tense verbs
ending in -ed
How do they sound?

When both the past-tense and the past-participle forms of a verb end in -ed, the verb is regular (walked) other e.g. stayed/fried/cried/carried
NOTE on the endings of regular past tense words:
- Sometimes adding ed to a verb will change it to the past tense.
- When a verb ends in silent e, drop the e, then add ed.
- When a verb ends with a consonant plus y, change the y to i, then
  add ed.
Otherwise, the verb is irregular (rode, ridden).
