Anyone here have a thorough list of regular verbs as a pronunciation guide?..or know where to get one? I googled and couldn't find a total list.
My students are constantly putting "finished" under the /Id/ bracket instead of the /t/!
Something comprehensive like:
/t/---------------- - /d/ ---------------- /Id/
stopped------------ pleased--------------- waited
and so on and on.
I also need a final s list.
fasts------------ blows ----------------watches
Cheers for your help.

Jimbo, do a search. I wrote a comprehensive thing on regular ending verbs last year on the forum. It's great and easy for students to master. Hang on...let me see if I can find it.
I found it: http://www.ajarnforum.net/vb/the-cla...unciation.html (Lesson plan re 'ed' and 'ing' sounds (pronunciation))
The same rules apply for /s/ and /z/ sounds. If it's voiced then the terminal sound is /z/, if unvoiced, /s/.
Easy peasy, Japanesey.
Great! thanks bro.
Dont think so, T.

Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
I concur....constan is wrong.....it is /t/ he must be korean
There are very few 100% rules in the English language. I believe this to be one of them for, try as I might, I've never found an exception to this pronunciation rule with an English word.
And if Jimbo is right and Const is a Korean then he would pronounce the word finish - ed - uh
ain't that the truffuss!
Don't forget the exception crooked
Nope, sorry, but that one isn't an exception.
"Crooked" can be an adjective, in which case the pronunciation is /id/ but the past tense of the verb "crook", is crook/t/. i.e. She crooked her finger at him with a come hither look.
My 100% belief still stands.
