Useful Verbs for Dental Hygiene and the Pronunciation of Their Past Tense Form


Past tense

Past Tense

Past Tense: In English, the most common way of making a verb past tense is to add the ‘ed’ ending. However, the ‘ed’ ending is not pronounced the same in all words. The ‘ed’ can have three different sounds. It can sound like a ‘d’ (which is the most common), it can sound like a ‘t’ or it can sound like ‘id.’

When you see the “speaker icon” you can click it for a short audio presentation, when you see a video image, click it to play the video.

Download the list of verbs that goes with this exercise and make each of the words in the list past tense and then say it aloud. Write the correct ‘ed’ sound in the blank next to each word (better use a pencil in case you make a mistake). Now listen to the pronunciation of the words and check your answers (you may have to listen more than once).
