Great! So now we have seen words that end in voiceless sounds and words that end in voiced sounds. Sometimes the ED ending is pronounced like /ID/. Words that end in a T or D usually have this /ID/ sound, and this is sound is pronounced as an extra syllable. 

Here are some examples, listen, repeat and record your voice to see if you are saying them correctly.

/T/

Words that end in a /T/ sound, like “want” and “start”, when we add the ED to the end of the word we pronounce it like an ID.

For example: Wanted – sounds like WantID.

Listen to the words, then record yourself saving them.

Accepted. Arrested. Collected. Counted. Exported. Expected. Graduated. Hated. Invited. Invented. Flooded. Included. Protected. Started. Wanted.
Wasted.

/D/

Words that end in a /D/ sound, like “end” and “need”, when we add the ED to the end of the word we also pronounce it like an ID.

For example: Ended – sounds like EndID.

Listen to the words, then record yourself saving them.

Ended. Expanded. Extended. Guarded. Handed. Intended. Landed. Loaded. Offended. Pretended. Recommended. Recorded. Reminded. Rewarded. Sounded. Surrounded. Suspended.
