Forwarded from British English Pronounciation (Ataklti Kahsay)
As we know, regular verbs end their pasts with 'ED'.

The end sound of the verb changes the pronounciatoin of the verb.

✳️ There are three ways of pronouncing regular verbs.

1⃣ /Id/
2⃣ /t/
3⃣ /d/

1⃣ The /Id/ sound

If the end sound of the verb finishes with a sound of 't' and 'd', then the 'ed' pronouces as /Id/.

👉 want~wanted/wantID/
👉 start~ started/startID/
👉 excite~ excited/excitID/
👉 need~needed/needID/
👉 decide~decided/decidID/
👉 end~ended/endID/.

2⃣ The 't' sound
If the last sound of the verb is not voiced, we pronounce the end sound of the past regular verb as 't'.
NB. Unvoiced verb means when we put our hand on our throut, and say the last sound of the verb, it doesn't make vibration.

👉 fix, here, the last sound of the verb is 's'. So to check wheither this is vouced or unvoiced, put your finger on your throat, then say 'sssss...'. This is unvocied verb. Because of this, we pronounce the verb as 'fixet'.
Try for the following examples using the same method.
1. Kiss, sssss
2. Walk, kkkkk
3. Work, kkkk
4. Ask, kkkk
5. Watch, chchch
6. Laugh, fffff

The 'd' sound

Here again, use the same procedure as we used to a 't' sound. So this verb is sounded(makes vibration on out throat).

1. Play, 'yyyyyy' it makes vibration. So we pronounce the 'ed' as 'd' /playd*/.

👉 the following examples are all voiced verbs, they all make vibration.
1. Warm, mmm
2. Call, llllll
3. Live, vvvvv
4. Clean, nnnn
5. Use , zzzzzz

So, we have come close to the end of today's programe. I hope you will find it interesting. It is really more helpful to sound like natural English speaker.

For more info, check Learn English with Papa on you tube. The title, he gived for this video is 'stop mispronouncing "ED"!|
Thank you for your time.
I will see you soon with another pleasant title again.

Stay at home and safe your self and your community from COVID-19.
