In all the examples of the past tense in this podcast, “ed” is pronounced with a /t/ sound. I’ll start by reading the first ten verbs as a warmup. I'll repeat each verb three times. Listen for the /t/ sound at the end.
Licked, nicked, popped, laughed, wrecked, packed, picked, jacked, mocked, perished.
Now listen and repeat.
1. My dog licked my face.
2. I nicked my finger with a knife.
3. The balloon popped and the baby laughed.
4. Martin wrecked my car.
