EARN的三態

Verbearnt

(British, rare) Simple past tense and past participle of earn.

[edit] Usage notesThis is an uncommon (<0.5% as common as earned in the British National Corpus) but entirely acceptable alternative form of the simple past and past participle earned. Still considered to be incorrect by many, who are largely unaware of the historical development of the English language. Other verbs which can be conjugated in this way are: learn (learnt), dream (dreamt), spell (spelt).

這是我從維基查的

可是看不太懂

可以有人翻譯一下

或是跟我說EARN的P.P.

除了加ED

可以加T嗎

    是的‧EARN的過去是和過去分詞.除了加ED外,也可以加T‧

    加 t 的用法很少用(機率低於加 ed用法的0.5%),但卻是完全可接受的替代形式‧

    而很多不瞭解英語歷史發展的人認為加 t 的用法是錯的‧
