-ed vs -t :

ed or t

You have learnt your lessons only in UK-influenced countries, you’velearned them in the US. There are several common verbs which often have“T” endings in Britain which seem a little quaint and poetic in AmericanEnglish, 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.”
