TO TELL THAT AN ACTION IS COMPLETED!!!!!!FINISHED!!! OVER!!!
Verbs used to indicate something happened at a previous point in time. Most verbs in the past tense add “ed” to the end. For example: start becomes started Some verbs in the past tense are irregular. They totally change spelling. For example: wear becomes wore
Create the past tense by adding an “ed” to the base verb, if it is a regular verb. If it is an irregular verb, change the verb accordingly. For example: We create things. (present) We created things. (past regular) We drink water. (present) We drank water. (past irregular)
English has two types of verbs in the past: -regular -irregular
Add –ed to most verbs Drop the “e” and add “ed” to verbs that end with “e” (smile= smiled). Change the “y” to “i” and add –ed to verbs that end with a consonant and “y” (carry= carried, study= studied). Double the consonant and add –ed to verbs that end with one vowel and one consonant ( drag= dragged, stop= stopped).
The –ed ending in English has three different sounds:t: walked, talked, jumpedd: played, loved, answeredid: invited, waited decided....*With –id sounding words, there isanother syllable!
