Talking People - Speaking - Phonetics - Pronunciation of the -ed ending 01 When to say /t/ or /d/ When to pronounce the "-ed" as a /t/ and when to pronounce it as a /d/? If the last SOUND in the infinitive form (the form without the -ed ending) is a vowel or a voiced consonant, the -ed should be pronounced /d/. If the last SOUND in the infinitive form (the form without the -ed ending) is a voiceless consonant, the -ed should be pronounced /t/. IF YOU HAVE NO TIME TO WORK THAT OUT, PLEASE PRONOUNCE A /t/, a strong dental sound, so that it is clear to the listener that you are not using a present or infinitive form! To find out which are the voiced and the voiceless consonants, you need to do the following exercise: Say "Ahhhhhh" Feel your throat with your fingers until you find the exact place where the vibration you can notice comes from. Say different vowels. Is your hand in the correct place? Being careful of not saying any kind of vowel sound, say /k/ Your vocal chords don't vibrate, so /k/ is a voiceless sound. Say /v/. Pronounce this (both): ask - asked.

Phonics games Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off! Follow the links below to the free phonics games. Click for free printable phonics resources to support the DfES Letters and Sounds scheme. Another skill which phonics games can help with is being able to recognise the sounds that a spoken word is made up of, which will help them when it comes to writing and spelling.
