    Regular Past Tense Verbs

    I am looking for a list of verbs that end with "t" or "d", so that when they are in past tense form the "ed" ending will be pronounced as "id". Currently I have: fold/folded, lift/lifted, plant/planted, visit/visited, graduate/graduated.

    I am not interested in verbs that end with "t" or "d" that make the "t" or "d" sound when in the past tense form. I hope this makes sense.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me in this search.

    Re: Regular Past Tense Verbs

    In OneLook Dictionary Search, you can do wildcard searches, so you can search for these verbs- if you put *de it will give you a list of all the words it can find ending -de and you can pick the verbs out.

    An easier way is to search British National Corpus (BYU-BNC) where you can set parts of speech so it will only show verbs.
