The -ed suffix for the past form of verbs is pronounced
- /-d/ after a voiced sound (e.g.: allowed: /əˈlaʊd/),
- /-t/ after a voiceless one and (e.g.: walked: /wɔːkt/)
- and /-ɪd/ after /t/ and /d/ (e.g.: halted: /hɔːltɪd/).
How is -ed suffix pronounced in the past of verbs ending in /ð/ and /θ/?
How do you pronounce smoothed in the sentence 'He smoothed his hair back.':
- or /smu:ðɪd/?
By the rules above, I guess that the correct answer should be the first form, that incidentally, as a non-native speaker, I find a bit difficult to utter.
Thanks in advance.
