Quote:Use your main dictionary authority for guidance (Macquarie Dictionary is our authority, and they only use ‘learnt’ as the past tense of the verb ‘learn'.

More specifically, the site quotes two entries from the dictionary to support its claim:

learnt: verb a past tense and past participle of learn
learned: adjective 1. having much knowledge gained by study; scholarly

taken from an article, is it learnt or learned in Australia?..

geez, i did wonder that i may have been saying the wrong effen thing my whole life, thanks Ocker.. chuckle.gif


learned sounds like something someone would say that had no basic schooling.. not that there is anything wrong with that.. i left school at 16.. was too good looking to finish..

no see, it is pronounced 'learn-ed'

you know, like michael learned.

that is an actress. michael learned.


i guess we just say things differently, cause that sounds weird.
