Ed and T :



You have learnt your lessons only in UK-influenced countries, you’ve learned them in the US There are several common verbs which often have “T” endings in Britain which seem a little quaint and poetic in American English, where we prefer “-ED.” Other examples :


“dreamt/dreamed,” “dwelt/dwelled,” “leant/leaned,” “leapt/leaped,” and “spelt/spelled.”


However, the following alternatives are both common in the US:


"burned/burnt” and “kneeled/knelt.”
