This English pronunciation how to video will teach you about American English Tense Markers, and I will show you how to pronounce –ed endings in American English pronunciation. When you study –ed endings in my English pronunciation online course, you will first need to focus on the English root word. For example: the English root word of the word “worked” is “work”. So in this case, the ending sound of the word “work” is the English /k/ sound, which is an English voiceless sound, so you’re going to add a voiceless –ed ending to the word “work”. (worked /t/). Now, in the case of the English word “returned”, the English root word is “return”, which has an English voiced ending sound (/n/). So, in this example, you will add a voiced –ed ending sound. (returned /d/). If an English root word ends with a /t/ or /d/ sound—like in the word “wait”—then native English speakers will add an /id/ -ed ending. So when you pronounce the word “waited” you’ll pronounce the –ed ending as /id/. In this example, you’ll also notice that the American English pronunciation tapped t rule also applies in the pronunciation of the word “waited”. The tapped t rule is: when there are vowels on either side of the letter ‘t’ then the American pronunciation creates a /d/ sound instead of a /t/ sound. Listen closely in my video on how I pronounce the word “waited” to understand how to pronounce the word. In British English, native English speakers will pronounce the /t/ in the word “waited”, but in American English, native English speakers apply the tapped t rule when pronouncing words like “waited”. Follow along with me in my English pronunciation video to practice more English words with –ed endings! In my English pronunciation video lesson I help you with a few other words to practice with me.

Thank you , I have some words that need to pronounce in right away like "Anxiety" and "anxious" how could you say for that ? thank you for your help.

+adamlovejo anxiety = /Ang-zI-i-dee/. (long I vowel in the middle - this font makes it look like an L). Stress is on the 2nd syllable anxious = /Ang-shus/ 1st syllable stress Go to dictionary.com to hear them. I hope that helps!
