The regular past tense in English is formed by adding "ed" to the verb. This past tense regular verb ending has three distinct sounds:

  • /t/ as in stopped, walked, relaxed
  • /d/ as in arrived, lived, used
  • /id/ as in wanted, needed, hated

Many textbooks contain some kind of activity in which students are given a list of verbs, and they identify which of these sounds is the final sound of the regular past tense. Captur is an ideal way for teachers to find out how well their students understand these sounds.
