1 The –ed ending: pronunciation and spelling Irregular verbs
The Simple Past The –ed ending: pronunciation and spelling Irregular verbs © Rafael Moreno Esteban 2008

2 Simple past: regular verbs
Use: Use the Simple Past to express the idea that an action started and finished at a specific time in the past. Sometimes, the speaker may not actually mention the specific time, but they do have one specific time in mind. The Simple Past can also be used to describe a habit which stopped in the past. Form: We add the suffix –ed in + sentences. Example: She played the violin very well last night. We use DID or DIDN’T in ? and – sentences Example: Did you call me yesterday? I didn’t have my mobile on. When answering: Yes, I did. No, I didn’t. In the simple past, the verb does not change for the different subject pronouns. © Rafael Moreno Esteban 2008

5 Spelling of the ending -ed
Verbs ending in consonant + y drop the y and add –ied E.g. cry → cried Verbs ending in one –e simply add –d E.g. move → moved One syllable verbs ending in one vowel + one consonant double the final consonant E.g. stop → stopped Except: verbs ending in -y,-w,-x E.g. snow → snowed, play → played, fix → fixed Verbs of two or more syllables ending in one vowel+ one consonant also double the final consonant if the stress is on the last syllable. E.g. prefer → preferred Except: travel → travelled, cancel → cancelled (UK English only) © Rafael Moreno Esteban 2008
