comment Differentiate between past and present just by pronunciation when word is followed by d- or similiar sound
@snailboat Although I now understand how it is possible to "swallow" the "-ed" (you were right, I was focusing too much on the activity), there is still a difference in the way it is said. There is a slight pause (almost hesitation) when saying "killed the" as opposed to "kill the".

Maybe this is just me but having said the sentences aloud several times and having had my brother do the same, I can hear a distinct different when the "ed" suffix is not applied to "kill".

comment “Teaching assistant” referring to a student
We used to call them "student teachers" when I was in school. Not sure how formal/official that was though.

comment What should be the correct tense and structure of the sentence?
I believe what he means is that grammatically, it makes more sense to break that into two sentences instead of trying to indefinitely extend it with commas which can confuse the meaning. Also, I care not for upvotes and accepted answers on here but for the sake of accuracy, your accepted answer has many issues with it as are being discussed in its comments, please don't use that sentence.
