Dental Suffix

Entertainment / Literature / Dental Suffix: A -d or -t ending typically added to English weak verbs (i.e, 'regular verbs') in the past tense and the past participle form. For instance, 'I walk, I walked, I have walked.' Here, the -d ending is a dental suffix. This contrasts with the English strong verbs (i.e., so-called 'irregular verbs') which indicate the past tense and the participle form by a change in the stem's vowel. For instance, 'I break, I broke, I have broken.'
