  • want, wanted.

  • He changed his clothes.

  • For verbs ending in "y",

  • first, "y" changes into "i",

  • and then we add "e" and "d" in the end.

  • For example,

  • try, tried.

  • He tried really hard.

  • Remember when the verb ends in consonants, plus vowel, plus consonant,

  • we double the last consonant,

  • and then we add "ed" in the end.

  • For example,

  • stop, stopped.

  • The car stopped.

  • If the last letter is "x",

  • we don't double the consonant!

  • fax, faxed.

  • When the verb end in a vowel, plus "y",

  • "y" does not turn into "i".

  • stay, stayed.
