- For Teachers
I was taught that there are three ways to pronounce the past tense of regular verbs. loved /d/; cooked /t/ and visited /id/. I have noticed that a lot of native americans do not use or respect this rule even in formal language. my question is why do they do this? I posted it four days ago. pelase.
Hi carlan, and welcome to the forums.
I'd like to hear the examples as well.
How do you hear these being pronounced?
By the way, the phrase "Native Americans" refers to the indigineous people of North America (or the "American Indian" before the days of policial correctness).
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I'm talking about English speakers. why do they say "stopped" /stopt/ (which I think It's correct) but "loved" /lovt/ and not /lovd/ as it shoud be. Am I wrong? thanks a lot
