    deal, dealt

    But, please note, even though the vowel looks the same (i.e. deal, dealt), the vowel sound changes:

    Present, deal (d[i:]l) => Past, dealt (d[E]lt)

    Symbols
    i: as in "ee" in see.
    E as in "e" in bed.

    If those are the forms you are looking for, try,

    sleep, slept
    dream, dreamt
    keep, kept

    Look for past tense verbs that end in "t". :D
