Re: The T and Ed forms
I invariably use the -t ending, but I found out on this forum recently that no other BrE speakers here use "earnt"! I was on my own with that one.
There are times when I use the -ed ending because the -t ending is an adjective.
My toast is burnt.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
(Hmmm, as if to prove my own rule wrong, I've now realised that I would say "I burnt my toast". I should give up trying to work out even the rule I work to!)
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
