    Default Advertisment

    I saw this in the Cogate toothpaste commercial for their new toothpaste:

    1. Pack to the Max (Is this correct?)
    2. Packed to the Max (Why isn't it 'packed'? eg. It is packed. This is what I am trying to say "Road Closed" is right b/c "The road is closed." But "Road close" is wrong? How come "Pack to the Max" is right?

    Sentence 2) is ungrammatical. 'pack' should be 'packed'.

    1) (It's) packed to the max(imum).
    2) (It is) *pack to the max(imum).

    Note, pronunciation: packed [paekt]. Sometimes a speaker will lightly aspirate final [t]. In that case, packed [paekt] will sound like [paek].
