    Default learned pronounces 2 ways?

    learned (verb)
    learned (adj)


    Do both pronounce "id" at the end of the word? or learned (verb) does not pronounce "id" but pronounces "d" at the end instead?




    Thanks for your help

    The learned professor took the class [learn-ed >adjective FORMAL
    describes someone who has studied for a long time and has a lot of knowledge
