- The ed ending on regular past simple verbs ending in /t/ or /d/ is pronounced with an extra syllable (/id/). For example: started, waited, ended. For all other past simple verbs there’s no extra syllable. After unvoiced sounds: /k/, /p/, /f/, and /s/, ed is pronounced /t/. For example, stopped, walked, watched. After voiced sounds, ed is pronounced /d/. For example, arrived, changed, used.
Voiced and Voiceless Consonants
What is a Voiced Consonant?
A simple explanation of voiced consonants is that they use the voice. This is easy to test by putting your finger on your throat. If you feel a vibration the consonant is voiced. Here is a list of some voiced consonants. Pronounce each consonant sound (not the letter) and feel the vibration of your vocal chords.
th (as in then)
j (as in Jane)
What is Voiceless Consonant?
Voiceless consonants do not use the voice. They are percussive and use hard sounds. Once again, you can test if a consonant is voiceless by putting your finger on your throat. You will feel no vibration in your throat, just a short explosion of air as you pronounce. Pronounce each of these consonant sounds and feel NO vibration in your throat.
th (as in thing)
