    Is there a rule for -ed

    I'm teaching in Veracruz, Mexico and my students want to add an extra syllable to every verb with an -ed ending.

    Is there a rule for this. I've noticed that most verbs (knotted, graded) that have a d or t before the ending, you add a syllable.

    Could you share an example so I can see exactly what you mean?

    You're right; we add the syllable after those letters.
