The general rule establishes that if the present tense form of the verb ends with a “T” or a “D” sound, you must fully pronounce the “ED” sound at the end of the verb. In the contrary , if the present tense form of the verb does not end with a “T” or “D” sound, you must pronounce the past tense form of the verb using a ”D” sound at the end of it. Notice that sometimes, the sound “d” is produced or listened as “t”, due to the fact that both sounds are produced in the same region of the mouth.
