    Question When to use -ed?

    In the sentence, "We cancelled the plan", why is it correct to say "cancelled" instead of its bare form, "cancel"?
    Thank you

    Have you learned about tenses yet?

    That's the past.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
