Asked in Past Tenses
Why do we change the y to ied in past tense verbs?
November 27, 2012 9:19AM
Because that is how the past is formed for regular verbs. Usually to form the past of regular verb we add -ed.
walk / walked talk / talked
When the verb ends in -y then "y changes to i then add -ed" or as you say "y changes to ied". eg
marry / married hurry / hurried
