    How do you pronounce "dropped out"?

    Hi. I have a doubt about verb pronunciation. How do you pronounce "dropped out"?

    "droperout", "droptout", or simply "dropout"? In the last case, the pronunciation would be the same of the present tense. Then, the context would say if it is present or past?

    Thanks

    Your middle pronunciation is the closest -- dropped out is pronounced like
    'droptout'.

    In addition, 'dropout' exists as a noun and an adjective:

    He is a dropout. [=He has dropped out]
    This course has a very low dropout rate.
