    Final ed Pron. List...

    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.


    /s/----------------/z/--------------------/Iz/
    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.

    Wrong, my friend. /sh/ is an unvoiced sound, the terminal is /t/.

    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

    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.
