    I am not sure what you are asking. Are you talking about the pronunciation of past tense verbs ending in "ed", or are you talking about all words ending in "ed"?

    For the past tense endings, there are three basic types (allomorphs):
    [d], [t], [əd]

    If the verb ends in a voiceless sound, it's [t]
    - p.t of wish, kiss, talk are pronounced /wisht/, /kisst/, /talkt/
    If the verb ends in a voiced sound, it's [d]
    - p.t. of wave, play, roam are pronounced /wavd/, /playd/, roamd/,
    If the verb ends in [d] or [t], a schwa is inserted.
    -p.t. of want, wait, seed are pronounced /wantəd/, /waitəd/, /seedəd/
    If the verb ends in a vowel, add [d]
    p.t. of try, ski, are pronounced /tryd/, /ski:d/

    Note, apart from the schwa, ə, the pronunciations are not IPA, but in normal English.

    I want to know about all exceptions in the pronunciation of the ending -ed, such as naked, learned, wicked...
    Are these rules you give just used for the past tense ending?

    Yes, they are. I made the mistake of assuming that's what you wanted, and should've waited for your response to 2006. Hopefully it will have helped someone else.
